The two men will also examine the potential for new agreements in several other areas, including trade, tourism, education and the environment, as well as the possible cooperation of the two countries’ police forces. Diplomatic sources told Kathimerini that more than 10 agreements are “ripe” for approval.
The outcome of Friday’s talks will determine which ministers will accompany Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on a scheduled visit to Ankara on March 4 and 5.
Earlier this week, the Turkish newspaper Aksam said Erdogan is planning to present Samaras with a file compiled by Turkish intelligence authorities with details of the alleged location of training camps for Kurdish terrorists in Greece and of the identities of suspected terrorists.
Greek diplomatic sources have expressed irritation at the way the matter has been pursued by Ankara.
