Greek Culture and Tourism Minister Pavlos Geroulanos hailed the first major collaboration between Greek and Turkish museums while attending the opening of the exhibition "Across" at Turkey's Sakip Sabanci Museum.
The exhibition, organised with the Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens, opened its doors to the public on Monday. It includes archaeological finds from the Cyclades islands and the Asia Minor coast stretching right back to the early Bronze age.

One of the main issues addressed were trade transactions between the two sides of the Aegean.
Among those addressing guests at the opening were Geroulanos and his Turkish counterpart Ertugrul Gunay.
