Türkiye supports the establishment of stable and open relations with Greece

The spokesman said that we should talk to each other more than to others about our bilateral problems, and called for keeping all channels of communication open to help create an environment of trust and respect to deal with critical issues.

Anadolu Agency quoted Altun as saying that the greater the transparency and predictable procedures and the greater the feeling of good neighborliness between the two parties, the better the space for resolving the outstanding problems.

The official declared that no one benefits from tensions, yet we can solve complex and interconnected problems for the benefit of future generations.

The diplomat said: “We can do that just as happened in the relations established between the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, and the Greek Prime Minister at the time, Eleftherios Venizelos.”

Alton called for putting aside rhetoric and escalating tensions between the two countries that are members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Turkey and Greece entered into a strong dispute in 2020 over the territorial jurisdiction of the maritime areas, where oil and gas reserves are considered to be located.

In August of that year, tensions rose in an offshore area in the eastern Mediterranean, where Turkey installed the Oruc Reis seismic survey ship, to explore the presence of hydrocarbon deposits, which sparked an angry reaction from the Greek government.

Greece, Cyprus, France and Italy came to implement the joint Onomea maneuvers, to support the position of Athens, which denounced Ankara’s repeated violation of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and international law, according to the local press. .
