On September 29, the OSCE Human Dimension Meeting continued its work in Warsaw, the capital of Poland. The topic of today’s discussions was “Racism, discrimination and intolerance on the basis of freedom of religious belief”.

Stating that the national identity of the Turks living in the Western Thrace region has not been recognized for many years, the freedom of religious belief has been restricted, and the right of citizens of Turkish origin to be elected has been grossly violated, the human rights defender Ahmad Shahidov severely criticized Greece.
