Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Wednesday hailed his country’s ongoing talks with Greece, and said his Greek counterpart would visit Turkey on April 14, APA reports citing Anadolu.

The latest round of consultative talks between Turkey and Greece were held in a very positive atmosphere, said Cavusoglu at a joint press conference with his Kazakh counterpart Mukhtar Tleuberdi.

Noting that the consultative talks between Turkey and Greece are addressing the issues regarding disagreement in the Aegean and aims to find a joint solution, he said it would not be a "realistic approach" to expect a solution in a single meeting.

Cavusoglu said there is a mechanism of political consultations between the foreign ministries of both countries, adding that more extensive political consultations are being held after Tuesday’s consultative meeting.

"Turkey has clearly displayed its position on the matter of the Eastern Mediterranean, both at the table and on the ground. We call for fair sharing in the Eastern Mediterranean," the Turkish foreign minister said.

He also recalled Turkey's bid for a multilateral conference on the Eastern Mediterranean, but said there was no response from the EU.
