    The new Greek Foreign Minister, Dora Bakoyannis, has said that she awaits a visit in Athens from Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul, and that "she will be very pleased when this happens." For the first time since becoming Greek FM, Bakoyannis spoke with Greek newspaper To Vima, and touched on the subject of possible Turkish membership in the EU.

    Noting that she supported the Turkish quest for EU membership, Bakoyannis did add that it was not an unconditional support on her part. "A European Turkey is to our advantage, but this is not policy doctrine," said Bakoyannis, who also noted that Turkey had a responsibility to open up its air and sea ports to Greek Cypriot use, something which Ankara is not as yet taking action on.
     
    Bakoyannis is the first ever female foreign minister in Greece.
