Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will meet Friday morning on the sidelines of the two-day NATO Summit which has begun in South Wales.
Their meeting will take place at the Turkish President’s request, in the wake of Erdogan’s statements during his recent visit to the north of Cyprus. During his visit Erdogan called on Greece, as a guarantor power of Cyprus’ independence and territorial integrity, to “fulfil its duty as Turkey does.”
Erdogan also expressed support for a two-state solution in Cyprus.
The Greek side is expected to remind the Turkish leadership of its obligations towards Cyprus, on the basis of international law.
