    Religious representatives in Turkey meet for iftar

    "Mercy rises as one loves, and as mercy rises, there is peace and no dark days," chief rabbi Haleva said during the fast-breaking dinner.

    Representatives of different religions in Turkey met over a fast-breaking dinner in Istanbul on Monday, the first day of the holy month of Ramadan, and gave messages of peace.

    Sisli Mayor Mustafa Sarigul hosted the fast-breaking dinner with
    participation of Acting Armenian Patriarch Aram Atesyan; chief rabbi Itzhak Haleva; Yusuf Cetin, the cleric leader of Syrian Orthodox Community; Yusuf Sag, the Syrian Catholic Patriarchal Vicar in Turkey; and Sisli Mufti Ahmet Tuccar.

    "Mercy rises as one loves, and as mercy rises, there is peace and no dark days," chief rabbi Haleva said during the fast-breaking dinner.

    Haleva said he did not want to hear gunshots anywhere in the world, whereas Atesyan wished that there would not be any saddening developments around the world and hoped for peace and order.

    Yusuf Sag wished that the Ramadan would bring peace and prosperity to entire humanity, while Yusuf Cetin said he wished Ramadan would end wars, help people intermingle with each other, contribute to affection, brotherhood, solidarity and tolerance, and unity and solidarity of Turkey.

    The fast-breaking tent is set up just beside former Ali Sami Yen Stadium in Mecidiyekoy neighborhood. It is expected to host 3,000 people every day during the Ramadan.
