Turkey urges Greece to decrease tension in Aegean Sea
Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras held a phone call yesterday, a source from the Turkish prime minister’s office said.
During the conversation, Yildirim told Tsipras that Greece needed to take steps to decrease tension in the Aegean sea, Reuters reported.
Earlier, Greek authorities say a Turkish coast guard patrol vessel has rammed a Greek coast guard boat near a pair of Aegean Sea islets. The coast guard says nobody was injured, although the Greek vessel suffered damage to the stern where the Turkish boat hit it with its bows.
