Turkey's Constitutional Court decided not to close ruling Justice & Development (AK) Party. Six members of the court voted for closure of the political party while four others voted for depriving the party of the financial assistance, and one member voted for the rejection of the case.
Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyianni said that the ruling of Turkey's Constitutional Court put an end to a period of uncertainty.
"The ruling of Turkey's Constitutional Court put an end, in essence, to a period of uncertainty and instability to Turkey's political life," Bakoyianni said in a written statement.
Bakoyianni said that the government of Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdogan could now move ahead with the adoption and implementation of reforms and adjustments required to mark progress on its accession course to the European Union (EU).
