The Turkish and Greek defense ministers have agreed to establish technical working groups to address issues including confidence-building measures, the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

On the sidelines of a NATO meeting in Brussels, Turkey's Hulusi Akar and Greece's Evangelos Apostolakis met and discussed current issues between the two countries, the ministry said in a statement.

Their meeting comes off the heels of last week's official visit to Turkey of Alexis Tsipras, Greece's prime minister.
