Next round of talks with Greece to be in Ankara on Oct. 6: Turkey

Published: Updated:

Turkey and Greece will hold the next round of bilateral talks aimed at addressing differences in the Mediterranean and elsewhere in Ankara on Oct. 6, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Friday, as the NATO members seek to repair their frayed ties.

Greece and Turkey are at odds over issues such as competing claims over jurisdiction in the east Mediterranean, air space, energy, ethnically split Cyprus and the status of islands in the Aegean. In January they agreed to resume talks after a five-year hiatus following months of tensions.
