Turkey has been in favor of dialog without preconditions with Greece since the beginning, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy in a statement on Tuesday afternoon as reported by state-run Anadolu Agency.
Turkey has reaffirmed its readiness for dialog with Greece following the return to port of a Turkish research vessel.
Anadolu Agency added that Aksoy said the date of the talks remains undecided due to Greece “taking a step back” over the Oruc Reis issue.
“Our Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources announced that the Oruc Reis completed its activities in the Eastern Mediterranean and returned to Antalya on Nov. 29,” Aksoy said.
