Greece has not implemented decisions regarding minority associations for 13 years.
President Abdullah Eren shared the following on the subject on social media:
"In 1983, the signs of all associations with Turkish names in Greece were removed! Exactly 13 years ago today, on 27 March 2008, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) convicted Greece for this attitude! But the decision is still not implemented!"» Other NewsGreek foreign minister to visit TurkeyGreece sees rise in coronavirus intubationsUS health agencies call for halt to J&J vaccine shotsPhotograph of Turkey's Lake Van wins NASA competition
