Greek press gather under 3 headings: Remarkable analysis after Erdogan-Mitsotakis meeting
After the meeting, the Greek press stated that the Greek delegation returned to their country with 3 main topics and drew attention to the speed of the contacts.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met with Foreign Ministers Hakan Fidan and Giorgos Gerapetritis on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
The two leaders, who discussed regional and international issues, stated that they wanted the positive atmosphere to continue and announced that they would work together on 'migration'.
GREEK DELEGATION LEFT THE MEETING WITH "3 TOPICS"
According to Kathimerini, one of the biggest newspapers of Greece, the Greek delegation left the meeting with "3 main topics".
Accordingly, the first point was that the Turkish side was in a 'good mood' for the continuation of the normalisation process. According to diplomatic sources, the Turkish delegation was interested in widening the circle of contacts linking the two sides.
"WE WILL RUN FAST"
The second issue was the pace of the talks. "We will run at a fast pace," a source familiar with the contacts told Kathimerini.
Kathimerini reported that during the meeting between Mitsotakis and Erdogan it was agreed that the current timetable would be adhered to and that communication would be intensified in order to prepare agreements that could be reached.
The third point is that contacts on topics such as the migration crisis, cooperation in the fields of civil protection, trade and investment, as agreed by both countries in the meeting, should produce some results before the end of the year.
These issues are among them.
CRITICAL SUMMIT ON 16 OCTOBER
"On 16 October, Deputy Foreign Minister Burak Akçapar and his counterpart Alexandra Papadopoulou will start a new process of political dialogue between the two sides, and after this meeting it remains to be seen whether the possibility of an agreement is realistic," Kathimerini wrote.
