Turkish PM in Athens on October 22 for climate change meeting

Athens News Agency-ANA

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is due to visit Athens on October 22 in order to take part in an international conference on climate change in the Mediterranean, the Greek foreign ministry said on Thursday. The event is called the Mediterranean Climate Change Initiative and will take place in the Astir Palace seaside resort of Vouliagmeni in Attica.

Foreign ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras was unable to confirm whether Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will visit Athens before or after Erdogan while noting that an agreement for a visit by Davutoglu in October had been agreed in New York.

With regard to relations with Turkey in general, Delavekouras repeated Athens' position in favour of enhancing and deepening bilateral relations and said that similar positions were expressed by the other side but had to be backed up by appropriate actions.

"Up until now, some of Turkey's actions are contrary to the practices ordained by international law and the code of good neighbour relations," he added.

The spokesman said that the visit by Davutoglu was taking place as a follow-up to the high-level Cooperation Council between Greece and Turkey in May, in order to plan the next steps and advance the process of exploratory contacts.

He noted that the 47th round of Greek-Turkish exploratory talks was taking place in Bodrum on Friday but refused to discuss the details, noting that the talks were confidential and concerned delineation of the Aegean continental shelf.
