More than 60 Greek reporters will meet with Turkish colleagues as well as Turkish political, environmental and peace activists in an effort to assess last year's Imia incident, which brought the two nations to the brink of war.
Ankara disputed Greece's sovereignty over the uninhabited Greek islet late last January sparking the crisis.
The meeting, to be held on the eastern Aegean island of Hios, will last for three days and begin on Jan. 31.
The meeting is organized by the "Journalists in the Aegean and Thrace for Peace Movement," and will focus on the mass media, Greek-Turkish relations at the dawn of the 21st century and social movements in contemporary Greece and Turkey.
