The defense ministers of Greece and Turkey met Wednesday on the sidelines of NATO’s ministerial summit in Brussels.
The meeting between Evangelos Apostolakis and his Turkish counterpart Hulusi Akar – both former chiefs of their countries’ respective armed forces – lasted about 30 minutes.
There was no immediate comment on the meeting.
The two were expected to explore ways of restoring previous confidence-building measures or adapting them to current circumstances.
The meeting of the two men, who reportedly enjoy a warm relationship, came on the heels of last week’s meeting in Turkey between Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
