Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said he will not hold talks with his Greek counterpart
Turkey and Greece have been at odds over a host of issues such as maritime boundaries, the extent of their continental shelves, airspace, and ethnically split Cyprus.
"He no longer exists for me. I will never agree to meet with him," Turkey's Erdogan said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused the Greek prime minister of urging the United States not to sell warplanes to Turkey. Due to this, the Turkish President cancelled the negotiations between Ankara and Athens.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday (23 May 2022) that the Greek leader had spoken out against Turkey during his visit to Washington.

In protest, he will no longer speak to his Greek counterpart, Prime MinisterKyriakos Mitsotakis.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Greek Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has asked US officials not to sell F-16 fighter jets to Turkey. He also accused Athens of harbouring followers of US-based Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen in his country.

Negotiations were to take place between Greece and Turkey, but the Turkish president has also announced the cancellation of a scheduled meeting between the governments of the two neighbouring countries in protest.

Speaking to reporters after the cabinet meeting, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, "This year we had a meeting of the Strategic Council. But now there is no such thing as Mitsutox in my book. "

He added: "I would never accept such a meeting with him because as politicians we all follow the path of those who keep their promises, who have a role, and who are honorable. "

Qarah and Athens are both members of NATO, but they have a long history of strained relations, which at times threaten to erupt into conflict. The two are embroiled in a bitter dispute over the status of Cyprus, and the dispute over natural gas resources in the Eastern Mediterranean erupted last year.

Turkey also says Greece is arming the Aegean Island in violation of international agreements, but Athens denies this. Efforts to normalize relations between the two countries began last year, but little progress has been made so far.
