ANKARA, Turkey— Turkey's foreign minister said Thursday that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's upcoming visit to Greece will be of a "revolutionary nature."

Erdogan is traveling on Friday to Athens along with 10 ministers. The Turkish and Greek prime ministers are to preside over a joint Cabinet meeting, a first between the two rival neighbors.

Greece and Turkey have improved historically hostile relations over the past decade, but remain at odds over the divided island of Cyprus and maritime boundaries in the Aegean Sea.
