Athens called for a EU-Turkey summit after the upcoming Turkish general elections next year, aimed at reviving the accession talks with Turkey.
Appearing at a press conference Wednesday, Greek Foreign Ministry Spokesman Grigoris Delavekuras, said an EU-Turkey Leaders' Summit could function as a road map for Turkey's accession to the EU, and give momentum to the accession talks which he said was moving at the speed of a turtle.
"We desire a genuine EU process and not a quasi one," said Delavekuras.
Greek spokesperson said Athens wanted to facilitate an atmosphere which would put flesh on to the process and pave the way for an open dialogue. Delavekuras said this could be considered as a sequel to the Helsinki conference, that could ensure Turkey fulfills its commitments to the EU within a time frame.
In his speech in Brussels on November 22, Greek FM Dimitri Drucas, called for an EU-Turkey summit, that would clearly specify Turkey's responsibilities as well as lay down a specific membership.
