Turkey and Greece agreed to enter into technical talks at NATO to reduce the risk of incidents and accidents in the Eastern Mediterranean, the alliance chief said on Thursday.

"Greece and Turkey are valued Allies, and NATO is an important platform for consultations on all issues that affect our shared security," Stoltenberg said in a written statement.

"I remain in close touch with all concerned Allies to find a solution to the tensions in the spirit of NATO solidarity," he added.

Turkey agreed to start a dialogue with no precondition but Greece did. Greece asked Turkey to leave its water territory first then start the dialogue.
