Greek president tells Turkish PM: More unites us than divides us


Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos stressed that Greece and Turkey have more in common than appearances might suggest in a televised exchange ahead of private talks with visiting Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildarim.

"There are more things that unite us than divide us," Pavlopoulos said, adding that "Greece is the door and the window of Turkey to the EU."

He stressed, however, that respect for international law and for European regulations were preconditions for being part of the "European family."
