Greek, Turkish Deputy FMs Meet in Kavala

KAVALA — The Foreign Affairs ministers of Greece and Turkey held a work meeting in Kavala, northern Greece, on Saturday to promote bilateral collaboration in economic and trade sectors as well as on issues related to contacts between the respective peoples.

Diplomatic sources said that Greek Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister for Economic Diplomacy and Openness Konstantinos Fragogiannis met with Turkish Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Sedat Önal "in a cordial and constructive climate."

Their discussion focused on business collaboration, tourism, interconnectivity on bilateral and regional levels, and on the reactivation of older initiatives that were not implemented. This was the first meeting on contacts of such nature.

Each side presented a comprehensive file on prerequisite lists drawn on the above issues, to determine their degree of maturation and decide on next steps.

It should be noted that during the recent talks of the Greek and Turkish Foreign Ministers in Ankara and respective delegations, the Greek side presented a positive agenda of 15 points, codifying issues pending since the 70s and others introduced in consecutive talk cycles to the present.

Following the conclusion of the meeting, the two countries' delegations departed from the hotel where the talks were held for a meal at one of the Gyalochoria villages at Mt. Pangeon.
