Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople

Your All Holiness:

It has been an honor working with you during my tenure as Secretary of State. Together, we have done a great deal to promote inter-religious and inter-ethnic understanding and to raise the profile of religious freedom issues in Turkey and beyond.

You are an inspiration to many with your contributions to the rich tradition of religious diversity in Turkey. I look forward to the day when Halki Seminary will reopen its doors as a shining symbol of religious freedom. As I prepare to leave office, please know you have my best wishes for great success and happiness in all your future endeavors, and for the continued well-being of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

With warm regards,

I am Sincerely yours,

Hillary Rodham Clinton
