Greek PM in Turkey

Greek PM George Papandreou arrived in Turkey today for the informal meeting of foreign ministers of the South-East European Cooperation Process. The Greek PM has also taken on the role of Minister of Foreign Affairs.

The PM stated that Turkey must show willingness to carry out the reforms necessary to become part of the European family and that it must abide by all the conditions set for membership.

At the same time the PM sent a message to Brussels saying that the European Union must become more dynamic in its dealings with Turkey and reiterated that Greece supports Turkey’s bid to join the Union.

On a side note, DefenceNet reports that today there have been no violations of Greek Airspace by the Turkish Air Force even though the count stands at over 20 for the week.
