EU foreign ministers meeting discussed relations with Turkey, will promote dialog, Borrell notes

The EU Foreign Affairs council "discussed all aspects of the relations with Turkey," Josep Borrell, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, said on Monday, and will focus on promoting dialog and cooperation.

In a statement following the meeting, Borrell said the ministers had "discussed all aspects of the relations with Turkey as identified in the December Council Conclusions, including sanctions, and reaffirmed the importance of engaging with Turkey in order to advance in and consolidate paths of dialogue and cooperation."

He also termed the restart of Greek-Turkish exploratory talks "a significant step", adding that restarting talks on the Cyprus issue would be "of equal significance."
