PM Erdoğan sends Christmas message

Prime Minister Erdoğan released a message December 23 extending good wishes to Christian citizens to mark the Christmas holiday. “Our country has become an encouraging and promising symbol showing that our search for an alliance of civilizations can succeed in a world where violence and hatred are gradually spreading,” Erdoğan said in his message. He also added that the Turkish nation has been one of the best examples of peaceful co-existence for centuries by expressing his wish for peace and prosperity for all of humanity.

The Prime Minister’s Christmas message comes in the wake of negative PR for Turkey with widespread reporting of Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomews’ claim that he feels “crucified” in Turkey.
