ATHENS -- The conclusion from the Foreign Affairs Council is that the Turkish actions are not a strictly bilateral Greek-Turkish matter, but a challenge for the entire Europe, the spokesman of the foreign ministry, Alexandros Papaioannou, said on Friday.

In this context, Papaioannou noted that Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias asked the EU to decide at the next European Council, in December, to take appropriate measures.

He also pointed out that a dynamic is being created regarding Turkey as well as a better understanding of the Greek positions. He made it clear that the European Council will take into account the Conclusions of the European Council of 1-2 October, noting that there are explicit references in the legal basis of these measures.

Papaioannou said that it seems that the voices, concerns or even the condemnations of the Turkish actions are increasing.
