Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras will meet on the side lines of the NATO summit meeting on 4/5th September in Cardiff, Wales, ’Protothemos News’ online reports.

Erdogan asked for the meeting to take place and according to diplomatic sources the main topic of discussion will be the Cyprus issue following the latest developments and Erdogan’s statements during his visit to North Cyprus.

The meeting could be a tense one given Erdogan’s remarks during his one day visit to the North.

He accused Greece of “not being consistent with her obligations” towards the solution of the Cyprus problem. Erdogan also said that the way to solve the Cyprus problem was to establish two separate states.

A spokesman for the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Erdogan’s statements in “occupied” Cyprus were disappointing, and stressed that “Turkey cannot integrate Greece’s international obligations with the serious responsibilities that Turkey has for the situation in Cyprus”.
