Can Turkey and Greece resolve their maritime dispute? | Inside Story

Turkey and Greece have been disputing their maritime boundaries.
And last year the two nations came close to war when Ankara deployed a survey vessel in contested waters.
Now, after a five-year suspension of their direct talks, they're back at the negotiating table.
Discussions to resolve the standoff in the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean kicked off on Monday.
Athens wants to limit them to continental shelf borders and the size of exclusive economic zones.
Ankara says other issues including differences over aerial zones and some Aegean islands - should be tackled.
So, does diplomacy have a chance?
