Erdogan tells EU's Michel that progress needed on improving Turkey-EU ties
ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told European Council President Charles Michel on Monday that progress was needed in improving relations between Ankara and the bloc, the Turkish Presidency said amid renewed tension between Turkey and the bloc Greece over the Eastern Mediterranean.
In a statement, the presidency said Erdogan had telephoned Michel to tell him that Turkey expected "concrete steps" from the EU to hold a regional conference with Eastern Mediterranean countries and that Greece would take steps to escalate tensions "despite Turkish measures" continue well-intentioned approach in the Eastern Mediterranean "
The call comes after a Turkish ship conducted seismic surveys in the eastern Mediterranean, leading Greece to make a furious new demand for EU sanctions in a row against Ankara for offshore exploration rights.
