Gökçeada, (“Imbros” in Greek), Greek high school will not open in 2014, after 50-year closure

Gökçeada’s Greek High School was unable to open this year, after the Education Ministry did not grant permission on the grounds that the school’s building was not physically prepared for the academic year as of Sept. 1.

Gökçeada’s Greek community established the İmroz Education and Culture Association on April 18 to open the high school on the island.

After remaining closed for 50 years, the Private Gökçeada Greek Primary School was reopened in 2013. Located in the island’s Zeytinli village, the school only had four students from the small minority population.

Russia regrets Europarliament’s resolution on Transdniestria. -European deputies as experts on such a complicated and delicate issue is deplorable

The Russian Foreign Ministry has expressed regret over the European Parliament’s resolution on Transdniestria.

"The resolution passed by the European Parliament at its plenary session on February 6, the resolution on the right to education in Trans-Dniestria, has not escaped Moscow’s attention," the ministry said on its website on Wednesday.

"We are surprised that the above resolution drafted by European MPs from Romania was literally "rubber-stamped" in the presence of less than 10 percent of the European lawmakers," the statement says.

"The self-opinionated desire of the European deputies who voted for it to position themselves as experts on such a complicated and delicate issue is deplorable," the ministry said.

Lettonie: Moscou dénonce l'assimilation forcée des minorités

La décision de Riga de supprimer la langue russe des écoles secondaires lettones à partir de septembre 2018 s'inscrit dans la politique nationale d'assimilation forcée des minorités ethniques, a déclaré jeudi à Moscou le porte-parole du ministère russe des Affaires étrangères Alexandre Loukachevitch.

"Les autorités lettones mènent toujours leurs politique visant à supprimer l'enseignement en russe. Or c'est la langue maternelle et de communication d'un tiers de la population lettone. Qui plus est, la Lettonie fait fi des recommandations formulées à maintes reprises par des organisations internationales", a indiqué M.Loukachevitch.

Štefan Füle (European Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy): Right to Education in Transnistria....

European Commission, 6/2/14
Mr. President, Honourable Members of the European Parliament,
The Republic of Moldova is facing a very difficult political situation this year, where deep-rooted domestic factors of instability are compounded by systematic undermining of the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity from outside. Attempts to escalate tensions in Transnistria belong to the latter category. We deeply deplore them and will continue to help Moldova withstand pressures.

Syriacs to regain Mor Gabriel’s land, no move on Halki Seminary in ‘democratization package’

The land of the historic Mor Gabriel Monastery will be returned to the Syriac community in Turkey as part of the “democratization package” announced by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan today, while the package fell short of meeting the expectations that the Halki Seminary could be reopened.

“The land of the Mor Gabriel Monastery will return to the monastery’s foundation,” Erdoğan promised today, while declaring a wide range of reforms on democracy.

“In fact, our government has shown a great sensitivity in this issue throughout the [Turkish] Republic’s history and has made serious efforts in return for such rights. We have taken sincere steps with regulations we made about the removal of such injustices in 2003, 2008 and 2011 and we received concrete results. We have returned more than 250 [properties], costing more around 2.5 billion Turkish Liras to the original owners,” said Erdoğan. Erdoğan also said that they would continue to return the properties of minorities without occasioning the suffering of others.

Δεν θα επαναλειτουργήσει άμεσα η Θεολογική Σχολή της Χάλκης.

Η επαναλειτουργία της Θεολογικής Σχολής της Χάλκης δεν περιλαμβάνεται στο "πακέτο" εκδημοκρατισμού που επεξεργάζεται αυτήν την εποχή η τουρκική κυβέρνηση, είπε σήμερα ο αντιπρόεδρος της κυβέρνησης, Μπουλέντ Αρίτς.

«Θα κάνουμε τα απαραίτητα βήματα (σσ: για την επαναλειτουργία της Θεολογικής Σχολής στη Χάλκη) όταν ειδικές, τοπικές και διεθνείς συνθήκες δημιουργηθούν», δήλωσε χθές στο τηλεοπτικό δίκτυο NTV.

Greek minority school set to reopen with two pupils in Turkey...

An elementary school for the Greek minority on the island of Gökçeada (“Imbros” in Greek) will reopen on Sept. 16 after 49 years of being closed, but with only two students.

The Hagia Todori Elementary School is reopening after Turkey’s Education Ministry accepted on March 28 the demand to open a school for Greek minority on Gökçeada, an island off the northwestern province of Çanakkale.

The school, which was opened in the island’s Zeytinli village in 1951 as the Hagia Todori Elementary School, was closed in 1964.

After the Education Ministry’s decision, the school has been prepared to be reopened for the new semester, but with only a tiny proportion of its 72-student capacity. Three teachers and one janitor will accompany the two students as the sole crew of the school.
