After the poor tourist season last year caused by the pandemic, some Balkan countries are hoping to lure tourists from Israel, which has vaccinated much of its population, by recognising its so called "Green Pass" for fully vaccinated people.
More than half of all Israelis have now received both COVID-19 jabs, making the country a world beater in vaccination.
Turkey on March 14 condemned the decision by the Balkan state of Kosovo to open an embassy to Israel in the flashpoint city of Jerusalem.
Opening the embassy was an extremely "unfortunate" decision taken by the leaders of a people who endured great suffering to gain their independence, said a Turkish Foreign Ministry statement.
The next round of consultative talks between Turkey and Greece will be held in Athens on March 16-17, Turkish officials said on March 10.
The two countries are looking for solutions to disputes regarding the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean seas.
The previous round of meetings was in Istanbul on Jan. 25.
Turkey on March 8 accused Greece of sending assault boats near its coast.
Turkish National Defense Ministry spokeswoman Maj. Pınar Kara told a news conference that Greece continued to deploy naval vessels to demilitarized islands in the eastern Aegean Sea, sending assault boats to Meis island just a few miles from Turkey.
