Greek Prime Minister to Visit Ankara

“Georgios Papandreou plans to visit Turkey to upgrade bilateral ties in all fields”, according to a statement of an official from Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s office to the Hürriyet Daily News.

Greek Prime Minister Georgios Papandreou, accompanied by a number of Cabinet ministers, is set to visit Ankara late October or early November.

Despite regional tensions over a Greek Cypriot gas drilling operation in the Mediterranean, the prime ministers of Turkey and Greece have expressed commitments to push ahead with bilateral cooperation talks planned for the coming weeks.
