Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias had a telephone conversation with his Israeli counterpart Yair Lapid, a day after Lapid’s meeting, with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

“In a telephone conversation today, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias & his Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel, Yair Lapid, discussed the next steps to strengthen strategic relationships of Greece – Israel and exchanged views on developments in the Eastern Mediterranean,” stated the Greek Foreign Ministry via Twitter.

A day earlier, during a press conference after the Israeli Foreign Minister met with his Turkish counterpart in Israel, referring to the bilateral relations between the two countries, Lapid said:

“After the first visit of a Turkish Foreign Minister in 15 years, we expect improvements not only in diplomacy and security, but also in our economic relations.”

Lapid thanked Cavusoglu for his visit and the “effective, honest, productive” dialogue, noting that the two countries have developed a new framework for the development of relations that extends in the coming years.

Nevertheless, when Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu invited the Israeli Foreign Minister to Turkey, Yair Lapid replied:

“as long as doner kebab is involved, i will visit” an answer that, as can be seen from the reactions on twitter, some Turkish people find it more offensive than humorous.
