In addition, the developments relating to Iran’s nuclear deal, as well as international and regional issues will be discussed. Meanwhile, President of the Republic of Cyprus, Nikos Anastasiades, called for a convening of the Political Heads of State Council of Cyprus for tomorrow, in order to inform them both of developments and of the proposal of Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci for co-management of the deposits of the Cypriot EEZ.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey is waiting for the new Greek government’s first moves regarding the Greek-Turkish question, suggesting however, that Ankara will not easily retreat from its claims in the eastern Mediterranean.
