"If such a request is made, it will be considered diplomatically and I think it will be answered positively" he stressed. 

 In this light the Today's reception by the Prime Minister at the Maximos Palace of the Mayors of Istanbul and Athens is of particular importance as Mr. Ekrem Imamoglou, who represents the Republican People's Party of the main opposition, is an extremely popular politician with increased influence. defeated by the ruling AKP party in the municipality of Istanbul.  

Mr. Imamoglou came to Athens at the invitation of the mayor of Athens, with whom he had met last March in Istanbul. The foundations for a cooperation relationship between the two cities were laid there, while they also signed a relevant memorandum.

Now, with this meeting, Athens is practicing city diplomacy, helping the foreign policy of the Mitsotakis government.

Of course, a key element in the whole affair is the political message that Greece sends to Turkey as Mr. Imamoglou is considered to be the most worthy political opponent of Tayyip Erdogan. It should be noted that the current Turkish president started his political career as mayor of Istanbul.
