Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Greek-Turkish relations are returning to the forefront having been shaped by the meeting between Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Vilnius and the decision to explore the possibility of referring the major dispute with Ankara, namely the delimitation of the continental shelf and EEZ, to the international court at The Hague.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has held talks with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Aug. 20, focusing on enhancing their countries' strategic partnership and addressing critical regional issues, notably the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
The leaders convened in Budapest to deliberate on trade development, economic cooperation and cultural exchange between the two nations.
As extreme temperatures continue to spiral globally, heatwaves and wildfires have wreaked havoc throughout several parts of Türkiye, especially in the Central Anatolian province of Eskişehir, where mercury has shot up to a whopping 49.5 degrees, breaking the country's all-time heat record, the environment minister has informed.
The procedural framework that will lead to the preparation of the important Greek-Turkish contacts at the summit level in September, as well as the substantive discussion that could lead to The Hague, will be sought in a meeting planned between the two respective foreign ministers, George Gerapetritis and Hakan Fidan.
