The Debate

Peacemaker? Erdogan's historic visit to Greece

Even when Recep Tayyip Erdogan is supposed to be burying the hatchet, the Turkish president still somehow manages to take on all comers. He kicked off an historic two-day visit to Greece by chastising his hosts over border lines drawn up a century ago and the slights suffered by ethnic Turks in border islands. We talk to our guests about the stakes of this visit for Turkey, Greece and Cyprus, which still awaits a breakthrough from its two patrons to sign a lasting peace deal and end partition.
