The aim of Greece is the continuous improvement of Greek-Turkish relations and the solution of differences, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis said in Brussels on Friday in reference to the course of relations between Greece and Turkey.
To reporters’ questions, if and when he will visit Ankara, the prime minister said that he intends to reciprocate the visit made to Greece three-and-a half years ago by the Turkish prime minister. He noted that that the exact date of his visit to Turkey will be arranged, as always, through diplomatic channels.
Commenting on the recent visit to Thrace by Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan, the prime minister underlined that “Greece is proud of its democracy and the fact that all its citizens enjoy the same rights.”
