Relations between Greece and Turkey are currently going through their most successful period, according to Istanbul-born Greek politician Eva Kaili.

The 35-year-old served as a member of the Greek Parliament from 2007-2012 from PASOK and was elected to the European Parliament last month.

“Now we are in the ‘[Prime Minister Recep Tayyip] Erdoğan era,' we have been going through the most successful period regarding mutual ties. For the first time since 1922, the two communities have become much closer. I want to believe that this generation will solve the problems [between the two countries],” Kaili told daily Hürriyet in an interview in Brussels.

Regarding the Cyprus question, Kaili said both sides can overcome the problem by respecting international law and "avoiding obsessions and expansionist mindsets."
