Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias has said Greece will make sure the channels of communication remain open with Turkey, according to the Greek Kathimerini daily.
Dendias on Wednesday briefed party representatives on the situation in the southeast Mediterranean and Turkey’s activities in the region during a meeting of the National Council of Foreign Policy.
Speaking after the meeting, he said that “Greece remains committed to keeping communication channels open” with Turkey.
He also briefed the parties about meetings with foreign officials on memorandums signed between Turkey and the Tripoli government. “The visit of [Commander of the Libyan National Army Khalifa] Haftar to Athens proves Greece has a say in developments in the region,” he said, referring to a January visit.
Turkey has been supporting the UN-recognized Tripoli government against Haftar in an attempt to secure its interests in the Mediterranean Sea.
