The Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met in Brussels with Prime Minister of Greece Alexis Tsipras. The Turkish Prime Minister also had meetings with nine leaders of the EU on the refugees crisis and Turkey’s relations with Europe.

The meeting between the two men lasted 30 minutes and the main topic of discussion was the refugee crisis and bilateral relations.

The Turkish Prime Minister stressed that “there is stability in our political relations. I hope that in the future we will have another meeting in the framework of the High Council of Cooperation between the two countries. There we will discuss our joint plans. I want to thank Mr. Tsipras for his cooperation, and our cooperation is important for Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean”.

Davutoglu mentioned the subject of their controversy in Twitter and stressed that the issue was “on Twitter and has stayed there. These are not issues that remain. What is important is not to cause psychological stress. It was a topic with humour and it is closed. Today, however, we had a good meeting and discussion”.
