In the backdrop of a political détente between Turkey and Greece, Greece's Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alexandra Papadopoulou, is set to meet her Turkish counterpart, Burak Akçapar, on Monday in Ankara.

The discussions are poised to center on bilateral relations between Greece and Turkey, alongside regional and international developments.

The meeting marks a significant step towards easing tensions and fostering cooperation between the two neighboring nations, which have a history of strained relations, particularly concerning maritime disputes in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Both sides appear to be keen on exploring avenues for constructive dialogue and mutual understanding, signaling a potential thaw in relations that could have broader implications for regional stability and cooperation.

Observers hope that these talks will lay the groundwork for further engagement and contribute to resolving longstanding issues through diplomacy and dialogue.
