ANKARA

Turkey’s Ministry of National Defense on Thursday said the technical meeting between Turkish and Greek military delegations concluded.

Both sides discussed measures aimed at preventing possible military engagement in the Eastern Mediterranean, according to a statement.

Another meeting is expected to be held, the statement added.

Greece has disputed Turkey’s current energy exploration activities in the Eastern Mediterranean, trying to box in Turkish maritime territory based on small islands near the Turkish coast.

Turkey — the country with the longest coastline in the Mediterranean — has sent out drill ships to explore for energy on its continental shelf, saying that Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus have rights in the region.

Dialogue for fairly sharing these resources will be a win-win for all sides, say Turkish officials.
