Turkey Invites Greece to Anatolian Eagle Aerial War Games

Turkey has invited Greece to the Anatolian Eagle Aerial War Games set for next year in what is a first in its history.  This is a move that could potentially eradicate the persisting mistrust and confrontation the two countries face in a number of areas, a news report said on Tuesday. The report, which appeared in the Cumhuriyet daily, also said Greek authorities were considering accepting the Turkish invitation. The joint military drill would challenge the traditional orthodoxies of the region, as the two countries face disagreements in the Aegean over territorial waters.  The nations also are divided regarding the division of Cyprus.  The military exercises will be conducted on June 13th-24th in the central Anatolian province of Konya. The Turkish Air Forces (THK) will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year and is thus planning to hold a series of events to mark the special anniversary. The exercise will include several other countries as well.
