  • [01] Erdogan: ‘Strategic' cooperation between Greece and Turkey

    AMNA -- Turkish Prime Minster Recep Tayyip Erdogan termed his country's cooperation with Greece as "strategic," in view of a meeting on Monday with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, in Istanbul. Samaras and Erdogan are also to co-chair Monday's Greek-Turkish High-Level Cooperation Council.

    In an exclusive interview with the Greece's state television NET, to be aired on Monday morning at 09.00, Erdogan says cooperation with Greece "is a strategic one, and we would like to ascribe to it a different dimension. That is, Greece-Turkey bilateral relations from now on should not be based on gossip."

    Referring to the context of negotiations with the Greek premier, Erdogan noted: "In our negotiations with the Greek government we will assess at what point our bilateral relations are, and we will have the opportunity to discuss how to move forward in the future...We have a loaded agenda and we will continue our work from 11.00 in the morning until the evening...Of course, we will examine a number of issues, including tourism, energy, telecoms, the direction towards which we drive bilateral political relations as well as NATO issues, as we are two NATO member countries and we should discuss the steps to take in this capacity."amna

    Speaking on trade between the two countries, Erdogan speaks of a spirit of solidarity, saying that "at the end of 2012, the trade balance between Greece and Turkey totaled 5 billion dollars, of which 3.5 billion dollars is Greece's exports and 1.5 billion dollars are our exports to Greece." mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";color:#0F1419;mso-ansi-language:EN-US; According to excerpts of the interview released by NET, Erdogan also says "the issues that we will examine will be the steps toward signing more agreements in addition to those we have already signed, and I think that all will go well."amna
