Turkish President Recep Erdogan, who is visiting Belarus, attributed great significance to the opening of a mosque in the capital Minsk.

According to Erdogan, this is happening at a moment when there is growing islamophobia and discrimination of various religions in Europe.

“This is especially true for those circles who are trying to teach lessons in democracy and tolerance but their actions violate the rights of Muslims,” stated Erdogan and praised Belarus leader Alexander Lukashenko for his tolerance.

The Turkish President accused the EU of the lack of financial support for the refugees in his country and warned again that it is possible that 3 million migrants might head to Europe.
