In other languages: GR – BG

The North Aegean Regional Governor, Kostas Moutzouris, sent a letter to the Minister of Development, Adonis Georgiadis, and the Minister of Finance, Christos Staikouras, to request the discontinuation of the funding of restoration project for the Valide Mosque in Mytilene.

The North Aegean Regional Governor and the Regional Authority consider that under the current circumstances the financing and execution of the project that was approved and included in the Special Purpose Development Program for the North Aegean 2017-2020 (National Resources – Public Investment Program) with an amount 1.2 million euros should be discontinued,” as mentioned in a relevant announcement by the North Aegean Region.

The regional governor said that he made this decision since he could not be indifferent to “what is happening in Constantinople and especially the conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque by the Erdogan government.”
