The government on Monday was again called on to comment on neighboring Turkey's European prospects, with the relevant government spokesman noting that the "Greek government fully agrees with a timetable set out by the (Finnish EU) presidency, within which Turkey is obliged to fulfill its commitments regarding Cyprus".
Meanwhile, spokesman Evangelos Antonaros also responded to press reports out of Turkey quoting a high-ranking general as threatening to "down" Greek fighter planes in case of another mid-air "incident" in the Aegean region.
"The Greek government lends particular significance to the promotion of good-neighborly relations with all neighboring countries, and it is well known that countries are judged by their behavior," he said during his regular press briefing.
