In a statement released on Monday, Greece’s Defence Ministry said “the date and other details of the upcoming meeting will be decided soon.”

Greek government spokeswoman, Aristotelia Peloni, said on Monday that Greece wants to keep channels of communication with Turkey open.

“Greece seeks [to maintain] open channels of communication with Turkey and the consolidation of a positive atmosphere that will allow the easing of tensions and the adoption of a positive agenda,” Peloni said during a press briefing, adding that Athens recently submitted a proposal to Turkey outlining 15 areas of possible economic cooperation.

Last week, the foreign ministers of the two countries clashed openly at a joint news conference in Ankara after a third round of meetings.
