Leaders of Greece and Turkey confirm positive relations at meeting

·

Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met in New York on Wednesday and confirmed their strong will to maintain a positive atmosphere in Greek-Turkish relations.

The last time the two leaders met in person was in July 2022 in Vilnius, Lithuania on the sidelines of the NATO Summit.

During the meeting, Mitsotakis and Erdogan agreed on a road map for contacts between Turkey and Greece, as set during the foreign ministers’ meeting on September 5.

The roadmap includes meetings of officials in mid-October for political dialogue and the positive agenda of the two foreign ministers; meetings in November on confidence-building measures; and the Supreme Council of Greek-Turkish Collaboration in Thessaloniki on December 7.

The two leaders also discussed regional and international issues, the climate crisis and its effects in the Mediterranean region, and they agreed to strengthen cooperation in Civil Protection and to work together to tackle migration issues.
