After a telephone call between the leaders of Turkey, Germany and the European Union which took place on Tuesday, Reuters is reporting that Turkey and Greece are now ready to resume exploratory talks in order to address their competing maritime claims in the Mediterranean.

As part of a videoconference between European Union leader Charles Michel, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the latter stated that the “partial momentum” which the parties had at one time after the establishment of a dialogue should be maintained with reciprocal steps.

The Turkish President also reportedly stated that he hoped the upcoming European Union summit, which will take place from Sept. 24–25, would add a new, fresh urgency to what he called EU-Turkey ties.

He added that he hoped there could be new, more positive developments on the horizon, including an update on the customs union that exists between the two entities and improvements in the areas of visa-free travel and migration.
