ATHENS -- Turkey has led itself into an impasse, as its reactions to the European Council Summit meeting on Thursday and Friday show, the Greek Foreign Affairs Ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

"Turkey's erratic reactions following the European Council meeting and Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias' visits to Armenia and Iraq, only serve to highlight internationally the impasse Turkey is at, due to its own choices," spokesman Alexandros Yennimatas said in response to a press question.

"As to its outrageous claim that it is the common denominator for resolving all the problems in the region, Turkey would do well to confirm this with the countries of the region, which probably rather feel that Turkey is the common denominator of their problems," he added.
