A report in the “urkish Daily News” indicates that Turkish Education Minister Huseyin Celik has promised Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew that he will establish a special commission to study the possibility of reopening the Halki Theological School which was closed in 1971. Meeting with Patriarch Bartholomew, Celik stressed that he believed free education in Christian religious affairs was a requirement for democratic structure in the Turkish Republic.
The minister said if there is a demand to open a school where Christianity and Christian religious affairs will be taught, provided that the laws of the country are respected, the government will have no objection.
On his part, the Patriarch noted that his visit to the education minister was aimed at conveying the problems of the Greek schools in Constantinople and to demand the reopening of the theological school. He said the minister listened to him with "understanding and patience" and pledged to speedily provide solutions to the existing problems "under the laws of the country."
