The issues he will discuss with his Greek counterpart.

Ahmet Davutoglu arrives in Athens on Thursday evening. The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs is scheduled to meet, for half an hour, with the Prime Minister of Greece Antonis Samaras. Later, Davutoglu will meet with his Greek counterpart Evaggelos Venizelos. The main subject of the meeting in expected to be the Cyprus Matter. Up to know, even though Athens has given its consent to the talks regarding the Cyprus Matter it has not yet given the green light for the visit of the Turkish-cypriot representative to Greece. Turkey, on the other hand, has accepted the visit of the representative of the Greek-cypriots  in Ankara.

On the same time, discussions will be held regarding the preparations of the 3rd congress of the High Level Cooperation Council, which is expected to take place at some time in the near future in Greece.

It is considered a certainty that Davutoglu will address the absence of a mosque in Athens, and will also report the problems of the Thrace minority.

From the turkish side there are not many expectations for the results this visit in Athens will bring. After the meeting, Davutoglu, will dedicate the new building of the turkish Embassy in Athens. Later, he is programmed to visit the association of the people from Imvria in Nea Smyrni and he is expected to depart from Athens on Friday evening.
