(KDRTV)-Turkey has declared that it is ready to convene talks with Greece over seething tensions over gas and oil reserves in the Mediterranean region 

According to Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, the country is ready for unconditional deliberations on the possibility of equitable sharing of resources in the maritime region

The recent tensions have inspired the two countries to reveal their military sway

The announcement by Turkey came after German Foreign Minister  Heiko Maas toured both countries to ease the escalating antagonism

At the same time, Greece admitted to holding an unconditional talk to solve the simmering tension but not under threat from Turkey

The Greek Foreign Minister  Foreign Minister Nikos Dendi made the statement after meeting with Maas in Athens

Maas is optimistic that his effort would bear fruits after meeting representation from two neighboring countries

However, after finalizing his visit to Greece and Turkey, he noted that the tension between member states of NATO has reached a critical stage

“What we need now and urgently is clear steps towards reducing tensions as well as a sincere desire to enter into dialogue. I have heard that all parties are ready for talks. And that is why we believe that goal can be achieved,” said Maas.

Turkey hailed German-led mediations but affirmed that it has displayed goodwill when it ended gas and oil exploration activities in the controversial region last month.

However, the Turkish Foreign Minister said that Turkey was forced to resume operations after Greece signed a treaty with Egypt to create a special economic zone in the disputed area

Europen Union Foreign Ministers are expected to meet in Berlin on Thursday and Friday to discuss that fate of the disputed territory

Greece is expected to compel regional leaders to impose sanctions on Turkey but EU nations are still hesitant for fear of offending Turkey, a key ally of NATO.
