European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has called an extraordinary Foreign Affairs Council meeting Friday afternoon.

“We will discuss urgent issues and address the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Belarus Presidential elections, as well as developments in Lebanon,” he said in a tweet Wednesday.

Greece’s Foreign Minister will participate in Friday’s meeting via a video link from Vienna, where he will be meeting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the Greek ministry said.

The escalating tensions between Greece and Turkey in the Eastern Mediterranean is “extremely worrying,” European Commission foreign affairs spokesman Peter Stano said.

“We agree that the situation in the eastern Mediterranean is extremely worrying and needs to be solved in dialogue and not in a series and sequence of steps that are increasing the escalation and the tension,” he told journalists, adding that the EU stands "in full solidatity" with Greece and Cyprus.
