Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç delivered a Passover message Thursday to Ishak Ibrahimzadeh, the head of the local Jewish community.

“It is our basic stance and principle to enable Jewish citizens to perform their beliefs and traditions freely,” Arınç said. “I celebrate the Passover of Jewish citizens living in our country and all Jews.”

He did not specifically mention Jews in Israel, which is trying to mend fences with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan after three years of seriously deteriorating relations.
