                                  Turkish Christians seek better legal inclusion

                                  TARSUS, TURKEY: The small Christian minority in this predominantly Muslim country is hoping for an improvement to its legal and social situation as Turkey comes under increasing pressure to address their problems and after Abdullah Gul, Turkey's head of state, said publicly that he is also the president of non-Muslims.

                                  "We are citizens of Turkey," Bishop Mor Gregorios Melki Urek of the Syriac-Orthodox Church said at a religious ceremony in the city of Tarsus in southern Turkey last week. "Of course we want to improve existing laws, not only for the benefit of Christians, but for all of Turkey."

                                  Bishop Urek had travelled to Tarsus from his home in Adiyaman in north-eastern Turkey to participate in a church service attended by Christian Wulff, the German president. The ceremony was part of a week-long state visit to Turkey by Mr Wulff. Representatives of five different Christian denominations joined the president for the service in the St Paul church of Tarsus, named after Paul, a key figure in early Christianity who was born in Tarsus about 2,000 years ago.
