Mais il faut aussi pratiquer l’hospitalité chrétienne, comme le disait le pape. (Mais le pays est à majorité orthodoxe).

    Nous avons une longue histoire avec les turcs qui ont représenté pour nous une menace, bien qu’on ait aussi une population turque bien intégrée, avec une tradition de coexistence pacifique. Il y a eu aussi une migration arabe dans les grandes villes, pour faire les études, de médecine par exemple. Mais cette fois-ci l’arrivée est massive.
