Greece said Thursday that neighbor Turkey has so far refused to take action requested by the European Union to avoid sanctions from the bloc. Government spokesman Stelios Petsas said ongoing Turkish offshore gas exploration in the eastern Mediterranean has undermined efforts to restart talks on a longstanding sea boundary dispute, which has escalated military tension between the two NATO members and regional rivals. EU leaders on Dec. 10-11 will meet to discuss a range of issues, including external relations and the ongoing dispute between Turkey and EU member states Greece and Cyprus.
Turkey does not expect ties with the United States to be strained under President-elect Joe Biden and does not anticipate sanctions over its purchase of Russia S-400 defence systems, a senior official in President Tayyip Erdogan's AK Party said. Relations have been tense between Ankara and Washington over issues from policy toward Syria to the U.S. refusal to extradite a cleric Turkey blames for a 2016 coup attempt. Turkey has relied on the good personal ties between Erdogan and U.S. President Donald Trump to smooth over divisions, but Biden is expected to be tougher on Turkey over foreign and defence policies and Ankara's human rights record.

Burkina Faso President Roch Kabore has won re-election by a comfortable margin, preliminary results showed on Thursday, after an election marred by insecurity that prevented swathes of the West African country from voting.

Sweden's Royal Family has been forced into self-isolation after Prince Carl Philip and his wife Princess Sofia tested positive for coronavirus following a private family funeral. "Carl Philip and Sofia tested positive on Wednesday. They have mild symptoms and they are in isolation now together with their children," Johan Tegel, press secretary to the Royal Court, told the Daily Telegraph. The couple appears to have contracted the virus when attending the funeral of Queen Silvia's brother, Walther Sommerlath, who died last month, aged 86, at Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm, where he had moved recently to be close to his sister. "Just before the funeral they all tested negative and so they could all participate in the ceremony, there were a lot of precautions in place," Mr Tegel said. According to the court, "fewer than ten" of Mr Sommerlath's closest family had attended the church service in person, with most participating in the ceremony via a video link. It was not until Wednesday evening that the couple first experienced flu-like symptoms.
