Greek Foreign Ministry to Ankara: There is only one minority in Greece, the Muslim minority

Greece only has one minority, and it is the Muslim minority, Greek diplomatic sources said on Tuesday in response to comments by Turkish Foreign Minister Melvut Cavusoglu.
They also made a point of reminding Turkey of the Lausanne Treaty.


"In Greece, which is a historic cradle of democracy and a modern European country, living under conditions of total equality before the law and equal political rights is the only minority, the Muslim one," sources said, adding that "it takes a plain reading of the Lausanne Treaty to understand this."
