Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu answered NTV’s questions.
Upon the arrival of Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias to Ankara today, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said, “We could not operate the mechanisms that have existed with Greece for 5 years. We could not hold political consultations. We could not do this due to the negative attitude of Greece. Exploratory talks were suspended. Then relations policy after excluding Turkey in the eastern Mediterranean tensed. The EU and different countries came into play. We are ready to sit at the table with Greece, ”he said.
Çavuşoğlu said, “Our talks with Greece have recently resumed. Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias will head coming to Turkey. He was coming yesterday, but there were NATO talks. I called for today and he accepted. We will host him in Ankara today. We plan to meet with him in a friendly atmosphere. The dialogue with Greece and high level visits is very important and satisfying. We do not need the EU or other countries to meet with Greece. There are issues that we cannot agree with Greece. We need to talk about them openly, ”he said.
Speaking on the contacts with Egypt that started 8 years later, Çavuşoğlu said, “We congratulated each other on the month of Ramadan. Egyptian side of the first week of May has invited a delegation to the country from Turkey. Conditions between us are ripe, negotiations may continue. Egypt is an important country for the Islamic world, Africa and Palestine for everyone. Egypt’s stability and prosperity are important to everyone, ”he said.
Explaining that a delegation at the level of deputy ministers will go to Egypt, Çavuşoğlu made statements upon the USA’s withdrawal from sending warships.
Çavuşoğlu said, “Of course, we want the Black Sea to be a sea of peace. There is a consensus reached by all riparian countries to come together and determine their maritime jurisdiction. If desired, the Black Sea can be turned into a sea of peace. We defend this. Currently, the tension between Ukraine and Russia is preventing this.”
