Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan sounded an upbeat note on the future of Greco-Turkish relations as he arrived in Athens on Thursday in a visit both countries hope can reboot ties after years of friction, APA reports citing Asharq Al Awsat.

Relations improved after Greece sent aid to Türkiye following a devastating earthquake in February. Both Erdogan and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' re-elections this year also eased political pressure and allowed them to put rivalry aside.

Athens has said that it will only discuss the demarcation of exclusive economic zones and the continental shelf in the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean, not issues of "national sovereignty".

The meetings will produce a joint declaration and agreements in sectors including the economy, health, education, agriculture, migration and tourism, according to government officials.
