The meeting of Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis with Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the NATO summit lasted for about an hour. Government sources say the ice has been broken.
Politicians agreed that it was necessary to leave last year’s tensions behind, although there were very important differences. The meeting of the leaders of the two countries began at 17:20, after the completion of the NATO summit. After a photo for the press, they talked behind closed doors. Earlier, the Turkish president argued that “the activation of channels of dialogue with our neighbor and allied Greece serves the stability and prosperity of the region”:
“We take into account international law, justice and equality, as well as respect for mutual rights and interests in interaction with our neighbors. I believe that the activation of channels of dialogue between us and our neighbor and ally Greece serves the stability and prosperity of our region, as well as the solution of bilateral issues. “
