The Greek Foreign Minister will pay a working visit to Türkiye

ANKARA, August 27 (Prensa Latina) – Greek Foreign Minister George Gerapetrittis will visit Turkey on September 5, amid the border dispute between the two countries, the Foreign Ministry announced today in the capital.

The aforementioned agency said in a statement carried by local television that Gerapetritis will be received by his Turkish counterpart, Hakan Fidan, and will discuss “bilateral and regional issues” with him.

And in mid-July, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis stated that Athens and Ankara were ready to draw up an action plan to develop relations in the coming months.

On the eighth of this month, the Greek Foreign Minister stated that Greece has relative hopes to strengthen relations and political dialogue with Turkey.

“We had a series of meetings, trying at least to re-establish a more honest and frank relationship with Turkey,” the foreign minister told Al-Qahera TV in Egypt at the time.

Noting that he and Fidan have developed a channel of communication, Gerapetritis emphasized that the aim is to try to promote a positive agenda on issues of mutual interest, and then work on relations in general.

According to the Greek minister, the demarcation of the maritime borders constitutes a big difference between the two countries.

He added that we are considering referring this dispute to the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Mitsotakis met last July during a NATO summit in Lithuania, which was recognized as a positive sign for both countries.
