UNESCO Calls on Turkey to Present Report on Hagia Sophia by February 2022 – Reports
Last year, Turkey annulled the 1934 decree converting Hagia Sophia into a museum, thus transforming it back into a mosque. The decision has produced negative reactions across the globe, including among Greeks who attach special historical significance to the monument.
