Turkey says EU is 'detached from reality'

Ankara condemned on Friday the statement from European Union's Mediterranean members, asserting that it is "biased, disconnected from reality and lacks a legal basis."

Hami Aksoy, a spokesman for Turkey's Foreign Ministry, stated that Greece needs to "unconditionally sit at the negotiating table" with Ankara to discuss cooperation in the region.

The official's comments echo those of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, who yesterday claimed that the "current tension in the Eastern Mediterranean was provoked by the unilateral actions of [Athens] who violate the rights of Turks and Turkish Cypriots."
