Tsipras - Yildirim's phone contact

In an effort to release the ongoing tension in the Aegean region, the Turkish premier Binali Yildirim spoke on the phone with his Greek counterpart, Alexis Tsipras.

Greek sources have said it was Yildirim's initiative. According to the same sources, Turkey's PM claimed that the incident that took place late last night (Feb. 12) in the maritime region of Kardak (Imia) islets did not happen on purpose, as it was not planned by Turkey.

The two men also discussed developments in the EEZ of Cyprus, but no more information on their phone conversation was leaked.../IBNA
