Diplomats representing Turkey are scheduled to convene with their Greek counterparts in Athens for a two-day meeting commencing on Monday.

Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan has announced that the meeting will encompass a Joint Action Plan session and Political Consultations in the Greek capital as part of the "Positive Agenda" dialogue between Turkey and Greece, as reported by News. Az and Daily Sabah.

Turkey and Greece have frequently been entangled in disputes encompassing a range of issues, including contested claims to jurisdiction in the Eastern Mediterranean, overlapping assertions related to their continental shelves, maritime borders, airspace, energy resources, the ethnically divided island of Cyprus, the status of Aegean Sea islands, and matters concerning migration.

Tensions escalated notably in 2020 due to conflicts over exploratory drilling rights within regions of the Mediterranean Sea, where Greece and Greek Cyprus assert exclusive economic zones, culminating in a naval standoff.
