POPE Benedict XVI today begins his first visit to a Muslim country, a four-day trip to Turkey where his controversial remarks in September linking Islam and violence remain fresh in memories.
His welcome will be slightly less chilly than expected, with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a conservative with islamist roots, agreeing to a brief airport meeting shortly after the Pope arrives and just before Mr Erdogan flies off to a NATO summit in Riga.
Will this allow for reconciliation between Christians and Muslims?
