    25/07/2001 18:20:32

    Greece condemned the actions of extremist elements operating in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) on Wednesday, which succeeded in smashing a fragile truce in that country.

    Government spokesman Dimitris Reppas reiterated that Greece wants the neighbouring state to remain unified and current borders to stay the same.

    Mostly sunny weather is forecast throughout the country on Thursday, later clouding over on the central and northern mainland that may lead to isolated storms in Epirus, Macedonia, Thrace and Thessaly.

    [07] Athens Bourse Close: Stocks, turnover mark slight rise

    25/07/2001 16:15:30

    Equities finished slightly higher on Wednesday, showing tentative signs of consolidation after nearly two weeks of mostly sharp increases and declines.

    The Athens general share index gained 0.22 percent to end at 2,621.64 points, with turnover at 134.8 million euros, including block trades of 7.7 million euros.

    The FTSE/ASE-20 index for blue chip and heavily traded stocks ended 0.12 percent higher; the FTSE/ASE-40 for medium capitalisation paper 0.67 percent up; and the FTSE/ASE-80 for small cap equities gained 1.08 percent.

    Advancers led decliners at 214 to 110 with 53 issues remaining unchanged.

    A week ago on Monday the bourse had shed nearly five percent in a session as part of a lasting slump after buyers resolutely stayed out of the market, with small capitalisation shares the worst hit.

    Since then, the market has posted roller coaster closes day by day with players recently buying back into blue chips.
