Greece says no date set for resuming exploratory talks with Turkey

(VOVWORLD) - Greece said on Thursday that no date has yet been set for resuming exploratory talks with Turkey over contested maritime claims in the eastern Mediterranean.

Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas told reporters that the talks will be on demarcating maritime zones, an exclusive economic zone, and the continental shelf.

Turkey has also given no timing for a resumption of the talks, but a senior official said they could begin by the end of the month.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen during a videoconference on Wednesday that he hopes Greece will not waste an opportunity for diplomacy.
