Taking a break from issues such as the war in Ukraine and instability in the Middle East, NATO and other officials accepted an invitation by a Turkish band to sing a "last song for peace" at a dinner Wednesday hosted by Turkey as the alliance's foreign ministers met near the Mediterranean city of Antalya. The foreign ministers of Greece and Turkey — Mevlut Cavusoglu and Nikos Kotzias — were seen singing and swaying arm-in-arm to the tune of the 1985 charity song. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, EU Foreign Policy chief Federica Mogherini and others also joined in the sing-along.
