Athens, Greece – Greek-Turkish relations are evolving from a process of tension in the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean to a process of dialogue and diplomacy in Mavi Vatan.

Concerning the announced new round of exploratory talks with Turkey over territorial claims in the Mediterranean Sea in January 25, 2021, Mitsotakis said the government “sought to resume” discussions by setting a specific framework.

“There should be no activity inside the Greek exclusive economic zone and the delimitation of maritime zones in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean as the subject of discussion,” he said.

“It is better to talk within a specific context than not to talk at all,” he added.
