The financial crisis in neighboring Greece is surely going to affect Turkey, the country's European Union Minister Volkan Bozkır said on Tuesday.

Bozkır told Turkey's state-run press agency AA that the country has been closely watching developments in Athens, adding that Turkey desires a solution for Greece's financial crisis.

Bozkır said there is nothing on the table for providing financial aid to Greece. "Also, there has been no request (from Athens)," Bozkır added.

Previously, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu has expressed Turkey's readiness to discuss joint steps to help Greece survive its financial crisis.

"We are ready to do the necessary as best as we can in cooperation in areas including tourism, energy, and trade," he told the press in Ankara on Tuesday.
