Turkey welcomed Monday remarks from Pope Francis that call for constructive dialogue in the Eastern Mediterranean amid a rift between the two countries on maritime borders.

Give Iftar and Sahur this Ramadan

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Whoever gives food to a fasting person with which to break his fast will have a reward equal to his, without it detracting in the slightest from the reward of the fasting person” Al-Tirmidhi

“I welcome @Pontifex statement on the Eastern Mediterranean. Turkey calls on Greece, among others, to respect international law, instead of militarizing the Aegean islands and laying claim to our Blue Homeland,” Presidential Communications Director Fahrettin Altun said on Twitter.

“The Mediterranean should be a sea of peace and stability,” he added.

Earlier Monday, the Pope said on Twitter that: “I follow with concern the tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean area and I appeal for constructive dialogue and respect for international law to resolve the conflicts that threaten the peace of the peoples of that region.”

Turkey and Greece are at odds over maritime borders as the Turkish government opposes Greece’s claim to exclusive rights, arguing that islands should not be included in calculating sea boundaries between countries.
