Ankara and Athens to de-escalate tensions in Aegean Sea
Greece and Turkey have agreed to de-escalate any tensions in the Aegean Sea, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said after the talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Tsipras said their dialogue with Turkey is “sincere” and “special” and stressed that they managed to build a positive agenda in Turkish-Greek relations.
“We agreed with Turkey to boost cooperation on security issues," he said.
"I am glad to have open communication channels with President Erdoğan. We can thus take more constructive steps," Hurriyet Daily cited Tsipras as saying.
Erdogan pointed out that some agreements would be signed during the fifth high-level meeting that will be held in Thessaloniki, as it will be attended by entrepreneurs.
