Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has sent a congratulatory message to the Fraternity, Equality and Peace Party (DEP) in Greece to mark the 21st anniversary of the group, which was founded by members of the minority community in Thrace.

“Our kin in western Thrace has always had a special place in our hearts,” Erdoğan said. “That is why it is very important that our kin exercises their rights, which have been guaranteed by international agreements, to their full extent.”

He added: “We will always stand by the Turkish minority in western Thrace, as we have done up to this day. ” Erdogan is said to be keen to keep relations warm with Greece, despite political differences in a number of areas.
