Daily Sabah – Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said that Greece and Turkey should continue with dialogue even if the two countries disagree on exact issues, emphasizing the potential for cooperation between the two sides.
“It is no secret that we have big differences with Turkey … We need to find a way to manage our differences without resorting to escalating tensions and to avoid what happened last summer. I think the way to do that is to agree on a framework,” Mitsotakis told France24 in an interview ahead of the NATO summit.
He added that the two countries need to find a way to solve issues through talks and manage disagreements in a civilized manner as they are “destined to live side by side.”
“And also there are other areas that we can cooperate with Turkey,” the Greek prime minister said.
Erdoğan also said on Monday that the revival of dialogue channels with Greece helped solve some bilateral problems between the NATO members, over which tensions flared last year.
