  • [01] Mass media-Conference-Thessaloniki - new technologies

    25/11/2000 18:45:09

    The "New technologies in the mass media for the development of Balkan cooperation" conference on Sunday focused on new technologies and their use by media organisations in service to the public.

    The conference, organised by the Macedonian News Agency (MNA) in Thessaloniki, begun on Friday with the participation of Directors and representatives of Balkan news agencies as well as representatives of Athens based mass media organisations.

    President of Balkan News Agencies' Association (ABNA) and Athens News Agency General Director Andreas Christodoulides addressed the changes taking place in journalism in this era of digital communications.

    These changes, Christodoulides said, with the passing of time are establishing new ?rules? for the ?multimedia journalist?, who is being created.

    ?Today, a news organisation, or put it in better words a multimedia business - since this is the form that is being created would be considered successful if it meets the criteria of the five A, as it is obliged to meet the demands of the interested users?, Christodoulides said.

    He noted that those five ?A? are:

    - any volume

    - any time

    - any body

    - anywhere

    - anything

    On his part, MNA General Director Spyros Kouzinopoulos reminded the participants of the contribution of ANA, Turkish news agency Anadolu and MNA to maintain low tones during the Imia crisis between Greece and Turkey, in contrast with several private media organisations and electronic media.

    [02] Cyprus-UN--Talks

    25/11/2000 15:25:36

    Nicosia, (ANA G. Leonidas) - The Cyprus government condemned the threats of Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to leave the UN-led proximity talks and called on the UN, the European Union (EU) and the international community not to give in to fresh Turkish intimidation.

    Cyprus government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said, as this would create dangerous precedents that international law and the acquis communautaire can be subject to blackmailing tactics.

    Papapetrou said threats by Denktash to leave the UN-led proximity talks are targeting the UN and the EU to force them to change their stance on views they have expressed on the general principles of a Cyprus solution and on Turkey-EU partnership agreement.
