ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece is open to a dialogue with Turkey but not under threats, Greece’s foreign minister, Nikos Dendias, said on Tuesday.

“I want to repeat that Greece is always open to a dialogue with Turkey, but a dialogue not under the regime of threats, insults or attempts to create a fait accompli,” Dendias said after a meeting with his Spanish counterpart, Arancha Gonzalez Laya.
