The Turkish Foreign Minister, Tansu Ciller, said yesterday that her country would block the use of Nato equipment by the Western European Union (WEU) because of Greek objections to Ankara's participation in WEU actions.

"Turkey will block all the support of Nato," she told reporters. "The WEU can do nothing without the support of Nato." According to a Turkish journalist, Ms Ciller said that Greece did not want Turkey, an associate member of the WEU, to participate in WEU activities such as peace-keeping and humanitarian aid. Reuter
