ATHENS (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 25th September, 2020) Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg have discussed the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean, the prime minister's office said.
"Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has held today a phone conversation with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. During the conversation, the parties discussed the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean after the withdrawal of the [Turkish] exploration vessel Oruc Reis," the office said in a statement on Thursday.
Earlier in September, Oruc Reis left the disputed area for its base near Turkey's Antalya amid the increasing tensions in the region. After that, Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas said that Athens believed that the resumption of probing contacts with Turkey was close as Ankara had withdrawn its vessel.
