Greece says Turkey insisting on political bizarreness

Athens, Jul 30 (CNA) - Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman George Koumoutsakos says in a written statement that by signing the additional protocol extending its customs union to the ten new EU member states, ''Turkey has fulfilled the obligation it undertook last December towards the EU and each member separately, including the Republic of Cyprus, with whatever that entails.''

He notes however that ''with the unilateral declaration, which it unfortunately considered it should make, Turkey appears to insist on maintaining a political and legal bizarreness, it insists on not recognising an EU member state, at a time indeed when the opening of negotiations aiming at its accession to the Union is expected.''
