The recent rapprochement in bilateral relations has also apparently influenced the Turkish national assembly, where it was announced this week that a committee of Greek-Turkish friendship has been established in the neighboring country's legislature.
Former Turkish defense minister Turhan Tayan, a True Path (DYP) deputy, has been appointed as the committee's chairman. Other deputies on the committee include Democratic Left MP Hakan Tartan - who a few years ago had promoted the notion of such a group - as well as Motherland Party deputy and author Yilmaz Katakoyuglu.
