.- Turkey’s Minister of Foreign Relations and top negotiator for the country’s entry into the European Union said this week there is no religious freedom even for Muslims in the country.

Chancellor Ali Babacan told the EU Commission for International Affairs in Brussels that Muslims in Turkey “can’t practice their faith either,” after members of the commission expressed their concern over the limits on religious freedom experienced by Christian minorities in Turkey.

Babacan is a member of the Party of Justice and Wellbeing, a Muslim-inspired movement that has been in power since 2002.
