A news article from Hurriyet:
"The sufferings caused by the
that hit Turkey has brought about
a warm spell in Turco-Greek relations. On Sept. 9 the Turkish town of
Izmir marked the 76th anniversary of the end of Greek occupation, the
day on which the last Greek soldiers had been repulsed from the city --
for the first time without a symbolic re-enactment of a group of 'Greek'
soldiers being driven into the sea at the thrust of bayonets. One day
before that the deputy spokesmen of the Foreign Ministry referred to
Greece as 'our friend and neighbor' for the first time."
