Turkey, Greece Hail Progress In Renewing Ties

Turkey and Greece on Wednesday disclosed that they have made “satisfactory progress” in several areas of cooperation.

Burak Akçapar and Konstantinos Fragkogiannis, deputy foreign ministers of the countries, met in the Turkish capital Ankara.

They met in the context of the "Positive Agenda" dialogue between the two sides.

A joint statement said; “During the meeting, a detailed update was made on the progress achieved over the 25 topics of the Positive Agenda list.

"Such as the cooperation and enhancement in the fields of entrepreneurship, tourism, energy, transports and telecommunications, maritime affairs, ICT, education, social security, health and environment."

It added; “Many items have been successfully concluded. Satisfactory progress has been achieved on several other items on the list."

The talks set the framework for the finalization of the relevant agreements that could be signed during the next high-level meetings.
