  • NATO chief attends Iftar feast of Ramadan in Turkey

    http://www.sofiaecho.com/2009/08/28/...pect-for-islam

    Nato Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who when in office as Danish prime minister sparked ire in the Muslim world because of the Danish cartoon controversy, said during a visit to Turkey that he had "respect for Islam as one of the world’s great religions".


    Rasmussen, whose candidacy as Nato chief was initially blocked by Turkey before US president Barack Obama brokered a deal, made the comment at an Iftar meal, an evening dinner traditional during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

    Today’s Zaman said that during his visit, Ankara would suggest to Rasmussen that he organise a joint conference by Nato and the OIC to discuss misunderstandings between the Western and Muslim worlds.
