Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke on Friday by telephone with Greek Prime Minister Kyriákos Mitsotákis.

According to a statement released by the communication department of the Turkish presidency, Erdogan and Mitsotákis discussed the forest fires declared in the two countries.

Erdogan said the forest fires in Turkey have been brought under control and his country is ready to support Greece in its fight against the forest fires.

In addition, it was reported that the two men discussed the situation in Afghanistan, as well as bilateral relations and regional issues.

During his exchange with Mitsotákis, Erdogan further underlined the importance of strengthening cooperation in the field of migration between the two countries.

According to the same source, Erdogan assured that in the event of a failed transition in Afghanistan, the migration problem will intensify and be a test for everyone.

Noting that Afghanistan is going through difficult times again, Erdogan said the new government to be put in place should be inclusive and representative, reflecting the diversity of the Afghan people.

Finally, the Turkish head of state indicated that if the necessary measures are not taken in Afghanistan and Iran, a new wave of migration will be inevitable.
