Spain's foreign minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya said on Monday it was important that Turkey's Hagia Sophia remains part of humanity's shared global heritage, after it was reconverted into a mosque from a museum last week.

"For us it is important that the spirit of this great monument of Hagia Sophia is maintained," she said at a joint news conference with her Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu in Ankara.
