Turkey’s foreign minister visited on Sunday Orthodox and Syriac churches in Cologne, Germany.

Ahmet Davutoglu met Christian Turkish citizens at the Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church and St Petrus and Paulus Church in Cologne.

“Nobody should seek any mala fide regarding Monastery of Mor (St.) Gabriel as the problem is only legal,” Davutoglu said during the meeting.

Davutoglu said forested areas were under constitutional protection in Turkey, and what had happened at the Mor Gabriel Monastery was totally within that framework.

Turkey would act the same way if it was a mosque, Davutoglu said.

Davutoglu said the monastery could be used, and hoped that it would be used till eternity
