Closer Greece and Turkey: Meeting for MoU in Ankara on November 13

Another step in the Greece-Turkey rapprochement is now underway, as the foreign ministers and delegations of the two countries will meet in Ankara on November 13, to discuss Confidence Building Measures.

The package of Confidence Building Measures will be discussed by the delegations of Greece and Turkey on November 13 in Ankara. However, the context has now changed and the meetings started from a new basis, not from the exploratory ones, a cycle that was abandoned after it was not possible to be effective.

On November 13 in Ankara, the meeting of the diplomatic delegations of Greece and Turkey will take place in Ankara on Confidence Building Measures between the two countries. The meeting takes place within the framework of the road map that has been agreed since September and the meeting between Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.

According to the official information from the Ministry of National Defense, the head of the Greek delegation that will travel to Ankara will be Ambassador Theoharis Lalakos. The delegations of the two sides consist of top and senior officers and diplomats of the two sides.

The road map

In their meeting in New York, the Greek prime minister and the president of Turkey agreed on the road map of the contacts between the two countries, which was previously defined by the meeting of Giorgos Gerapetritis with his Turkish counterpart, Hakan Fidan, on September 5.

The road map provided for the meetings in mid-October of the responsible for the political dialogue and the positive agenda of the Deputy Ministers of Foreign Affairs. Also, meetings in November on the Confidence Building Measures, but also the meeting of the Supreme Council of Greece-Turkey Cooperation on December 7 in Thessaloniki.

It is considered likely that Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Recep Tayyip Erdogan will attend this meeting, a meeting that is expected with great interest, in the middle of the war in the Middle East, as the Greek government maintains a stance of support for Israel, with suggestions for “humanitarian pauses” for the providing aid to civilians in Gaza, while the Turkish president has accused the Israeli government of war crimes.

Of course, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, when asked about Turkey’s position, said that this different position of the two countries should not affect Greek-Turkish relations.
