Greek Opposition Head Meets Turkish PM in Germany

New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis (R) with Turkish premier Binali Yildirim

Senior figures from Greece’s main opposition party met Turkey’s prime minister and foreign minister recently in Germany.

New Democracy head Kyriakos Mitsotakis and shadow foreign minister Giorgos Koumoutsakos met the pair on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference in Germany.

The meeting comes as tensions between the Aegean neighbors and NATO allies have increased over Turkish incidents at sea and in Greek airspace.

Mitsotakis also published photos of meetings with Austria’s Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
