Turkey and Greece agreed to talks over disputed waters in the Eastern Mediterranean, both sides announced yesterday, after German-led efforts to defuse a crisis that has raised fears of conflict.
Earlier in the day, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held a videoconference with European Council President Charles Michel and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The Turkish government said in a statement after the meeting that “Turkey-EU relations were discussed comprehensively” and “developments in the East Mediterranean were elaborated [and] it was stated that Turkey and Greece were ready to start exploratory talks.”
