Please see below a English translation of his remarks made in Italian:
“Hello. I welcome you and thank you for your company during this journey. Your work is a support, a help and also a service for the world, reporting on this religious and humanitarian activity. At this time, Turkey is a witness (to this) and one that offers help to many refugees from the areas of conflict. I thank you for your work. We’ll meet again on our return for the press conference. Many thanks and have a good trip.”
