    REUTERS News Staff wrote:LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Monday that he was concerned about tensions in the eastern Mediterranean, welcoming news that Turkey and Greece had agreed to talks, Johnson's office said in a statement.

    NATO allies Greece and Turkey, at loggerheads on a range of issues, have agreed to resume exploratory talks over contested maritime claims following weeks of tension, and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was beginning a two-day trip to Greece.

    "The Prime Minister expressed his concern about recent tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean. He stressed the need for calm and welcomed the news that Turkey and Greece have agreed to talks," Johnson's office said.

    I really don't know what to make of this. Maybe @Kyng can shed a little more insight than I can give here.

    Just Saying... until @Kyng can respond.

    Sadly, I can't really... this story has received practically zero news coverage over here Razz . Our media's too distracted by COVID and US stuff, so it seems like this story has been lost in the shuffle.

    Still, I guess this is a good sign. Greece and Turkey have been enemies for years (well, centuries, going back to when Greece was part of the Ottoman Empire, until they successfully fought for their independence in the 1820s). So, anything that defuses tensions between them has to be good.

    Looks like this, like most national and international news stories, this will be a wait and see what happens next kind of deal...

    Yeah, pretty much. Quite often, the talks look very promising, only to fall apart at the last moment.

    The most ridiculous example I could think of was in the naming dispute between Greece and Macedonia, which dragged on from 1991 until 2019, when Macedonia agreed to re-name itself North Macedonia. There was hope that it could be resolved in 2013, when the two sides came close to an agreement: Macedonia was willing to change to "Upper Republic of Macedonia", while Greece was willing to accept "Republic of Upper Macedonia". Sadly, they then couldn't agree on the word order, and the entire negotiations fell apart because of that.

    Yeah... international politics can be really frustrating sometimes >_< .

    That's politics in general, my friend. Right now in the U.S., we have two governing parties who just can't get along and it's the people who are suffering.
