GREECE-TURKEY: Ankara, 9 – Talks between Prime Minister Constantine Karamanlis and his Turkish counterpart Adnan Menderes ended here in the Turkish capital today, with both sides claiming that a new era in bilateral relations had begun as a result of the talks as well as with the treaties signed in Zurich and London. Both governments said they hoped that deeds would follow words. Karamanlis told the press that he was «more than optimistic» and in fact was «very satisfied.» «The Cyprus question had divided Turks and Greeks. It was a problem that had poisoned relations between the two countries, but is now on the way to being successfully resolved. Other problems between the two countries are mere details that can easily be resolved,» he said.
