A plane carrying Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan has landed at the Athens International Airport (AIA), as the latter will begin a two-day official visit to the country.

This is the first time since 1952 that a Turkish head of state has officially visited Greece, although Erdogan, as prime minister, has been to Greece another five times.

He is due to meet with Greek leadership in a closely watched visit.
