Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s 7-hour visit to Greece ended in the afternoon after a round of high-level meetings with his accompanying officials.
The only “dissatisfaction” with Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s insistence on having a “Turkish” minority in Thrace, which was formally answered by the prime minister, was the Turkish president’s short but extensive visit to Athens and his meeting with the prime minister. The minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, moved in a low tone and positive, cordial atmosphere.
The Turkish president, in a post on his account on the X platform, presents photos of his visit to the Greek capital and publishes excerpts from the statements he made together with the prime minister.

“Through the Athens Declaration, we confirmed at the highest level our desire to improve our relations,” wrote Tayyip Erdogan, expressing a genuine desire to “solve our existing problems through constructive dialogue, good neighborliness and joint efforts based on international law.” .
“There’s no problem too big between us to solve…”
Keeping a low profile in his post, Turkey’s president continued to write: “We are two neighboring countries, sharing the same sea, the same geography, the same climate and in many areas the same culture. We want to make the Aegean a sea of peace and cooperation. The joint actions we take as Turkey-Greece We want to be an example to the whole world”.
And he concludes “There is no problem between us, no problem too big to solve…”
