BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:35 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that he had made a ‘quick recovery’ after fainting ahead of Eid morning prayers at the Mimar Sinan mosque in Istanbul, Sunday.
“I experience blood pressure instability depending on my sugar level. Thank God for the quick recovery. I am in a good condition now,” said Erdogan.
The Turkish leader then added that his party delegation would continue its Eid celebrations at the Halic Congress Centre in Istanbul.
Before leaving he told journalists that unity among Muslims was “the most important thing for us. I hope this Eid, which has great importance in the Islamic world, will be a new beginning.”
Eid al-Fitr is one of the most important days in the Islamic calendar and marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
