Relations between Greece and Turkey, neighbours and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, have improved over the years but they remain at odds over territorial disputes and ethnically split Cyprus.

The controversy also comes as Greece and Turkey are trying to work together to find a deal for the reunification of Cyprus in ongoing talks brokered by the United Nations.
