For­eign Min­is­ter Evan­ge­los Venizelos chaired a meet­ing of min­is­ters yes­ter­day in prepa­ra­tion for the Greek-Turk­ish High-Level Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil, due to take place in Athens on De­cem­ber 5 and 6, and ad­vised them that the up­com­ing talks would fo­cus on high pol­i­tics,

Venizelos said that no new low-pol­i­tics deals would be signed un­less nec­es­sary. In­stead, Prime Min­is­ter An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras wants the talks to fo­cus on diplo­matic is­sues such as the de­mar­ca­tion of mar­itime zones, Turkey’s ef­forts to join the Euro­pean Union, the Cyprus is­sue and the Turk­ish pres­ence in the Cypriot ex­clu­sive eco­nomic zone.
