Turkish President Erdogan meets Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis in Athens

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday met with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis during his one-day visit to Greece.

Erdogan and Mitsotakis will also co-chair the 5th meeting of the Trkiye-Greece High Level Cooperation Council to review all aspects of bilateral relations, and to address steps to improve cooperation.?

Trkiye and Greece have experienced a tumultuous relationship over the years. Although 2021 saw some improvements, several issues remain unresolved between the two neighboring countries.

Trkiye, a NATO member for over 70 years, has protested repeated provocative actions and rhetoric by Greece in the region in recent years, including arming islands near Turkish shores that are demilitarized under longstanding treaties, saying that such moves frustrate its good faith efforts toward peace.
