In Speaking at an iftar dinner in Trabzon, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said: “Do you know what we did when we could not be together for iftar because of the pandemic? We took a step towards natural gas in the eastern Mediterranean, showing our strength to the whole world, without being afraid of anyone. Do you know what we did? While everyone was working on how to get rid of the pandemic, we turned the closed city of Varos into an open city with the will of the President & # 8221 ;. He went on to say that & # 8220; we opened the Hagia Sophia, about which we were told for years you can not open it, we will not let you open it, we will spoil your peace, waving your finger over our heads as if it were sword of democracy “.
