Turkey’s Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias paid a visit to the head of Turkish diplomacy Mevlut Cavusoglu. The visit was part of a round called “earthquake diplomacy” between the two troubled allies. – We should not wait for another earthquake to improve our bilateral relations. I hope we will make an effort to resolve our problems through dialogue,” Cavusoglu said as he welcomed Dendias to Antalya on Sunday.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, referring to the 1999 earthquakes in Turkey and Greece, after which the two countries rushed to the aid of each other, and a letter he wrote to Time magazine at the time, claiming that the two countries should not wait for another earthquake, said the thought had not lost its relevance.

“Greece will do everything in its power to support Turkey”

He noted that the presence of Dendias in Turkey showed the support and solidarity of the Greek people towards the Turks, underlined the fact that Greece was one of the first countries to contact the Turkish authorities after the earthquake to express its sympathy and willingness to help, including immediately sending rescue teams and humanitarian planes to the earthquake-affected areas.
