Recep Tayyip Erdoğan
Greece and Turkey agreed to cooperate to limit the number of migrants reaching the islands of the eastern Aegean during Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' first informal meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on the sidelines of the United Nations Climate Change Summit in New York on Wednesday.
A day after Recep Tayyip Erdogan insisted that Turkish troops will remain on Cyprus, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is on Wednesday scheduled to meet with Turkey's President in New York.
It will be Mitsotakis' first meeting with Erdogan as Greek prime minister. The meeting is set to take place at 9.45 a.m. local time.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday denounced what he described as "ill-intentioned" calls for a withdrawal of Turkish troops from Cyprus and the scrapping of the guarantees system that was established on the island when it gained independence which made Greece, Turkey and Britain guarantor powers.
