Ethnic groups in Greece
The properties of a Turkish Muslim foundation on the Greek island of Kos (İstanköy) have been put up for sale under pressure by the Greek government. The Education and Culture Association of Kos Muslims, another foundation, has condemned both the sale and the donation, expressing its expectation that the decisions be withdrawn.
Athens said it expects the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to fully respect the "letter and spirit" of the name deal it signed with Greece last summer after reports that the Balkan country's Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said that "Macedonians" in Greece will have the right to be taught the "Macedonian" language.
Following a controversial decision, Athens is likely to take steps to preserve the balance between Turkish and Greek language lessons in the curriculum of Muslim religious schools in Western Thrace, according to an expert on minority affairs in Greece.
