ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in a phone call on Tuesday that Greece needed to take steps to decrease tension in the Aegean sea, a source from the Turkish prime minister's office said.
Relations between the two neighbours have become strained due to a dispute over resources in the eastern Mediterranean and vessels from the two sides colliding near disputed islands.
