The belief that the construction of the mosque in the area of Votanikos in Athens will put an end to the weakening of Greece’s international image and will ensure better terms of religious activity, was expressed by Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Ioannis Amanatidis in a statement to ANA-MPA.

More specifically Mr. Amanatidis said that “the construction of the mosque will ensure better terms of religious activity and it is the responsibility and concern of the Greek State, guaranteeing the right to all Greek citizens to exercise their faith, regardless of religion, and always in accordance with the requirements of the Constitution concerning religious freedom”.

The deputy Foreign Minister added “Moreover, the construction of the mosque will put an end to the weakening of our international image and the country’s credibility both on a bilateral level and in numerous international organisations and international fora, in which regular dialogue is conducted concerning issues on religious freedom.”
