Greece and Turkey are close friends and allies to the UK. We encourage both countries to resolve issues through dialogue. We support measures, such as using existing deconfliction mechanisms within NATO structures, aimed at de-escalation and reduction of tensions. The UK will continue to work with all parties in support of this.
