We keep the human rights situation in Turkey under close scrutiny at all times, including the monitoring of issues relating to freedom of religion and belief. We support the rights of all minority groups in Turkey, including Christians and note that the right to freedom of religion and belief is clearly enshrined in the Turkish constitution. We will continue to raise issues of freedom of religion and belief with the Turkish authorities.
