Turkey says 'only we decide' on Hagia Sophia as mosque

'It's a question of national sovereignty and not international'

11 June, 16:27

    ISTANBUL - Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said the Hagia Sophia is "not an international question at all, but a question of national sovereignty", following harsh controversy in recent days, especially with Greece, on the possibility of reconverting the symbolic Istanbul monument into a mosque.
    It has been a museum since 1935, after having previously been a Christian basilica and an Islamic place of worship.
