Greek Foreign minister Nikos Kotzias chaired on Thursday a new meeting to assess the situation in Turkey. The meeting was attended, among others, by the political and administrative leadership of the Foreign Ministry, the Deputy Minister of Citizen Protection and the Chief of the General Staff.

The Foreign Ministry is following with great interest the developments in Turkey as they affect the stability of a highly fluid region convulsed by civil wars and terrorist attacks by extremist groups.

In the meeting was analyzed the new geostrategic balances formed in the region following the coup in Turkey, possible side effects both in Greek-Turkish relations, and in Turkey’s relations with Cyprus with a direct impact on talks for a Cyprus issue resolution.
