Ministry of Foreign Affairs Announcement

21 August 2020 News

With reference to the announced decision concerning the status of Istanbul’s Kariye Museum, which has triggered widespread outcry by the public and media and in view of its history as a place of worship spanning a thousand years and its extraordinary importance as a monument of cultural significance to both Christianity and Islam, we expect that measures will be adopted to protect its valuable works of art and its universal historical value and that access will continue to be provided to all visitors.
