  • [01] Gov't on 'Euro-force' prospects

    03/12/2001 21:12:03

    The Greek government emphasised on Monday that its standing demand remains for Nice summit commitments and decisions to be duly observed regarding the ever-looming prospect of an ?Euro-force?.

    The comments follow a weekend visit to Athens by Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt -- whose country holds the EU rotating presidency and his talks with Greek PM Costas Simitis on the complex issue.

    Government spokesman Christos Protopapas responded to a question at his daily press briefing regarding recent statements by Turkish Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit, and following the latter's talks with US and British officials in Ankara.

    According to wire reports, Ecevit said on Sunday that most of Turkey's 'rightful expectations' had been met after British and US diplomats negotiated with the Turks last week.

    On his part, Protopapas said it wasnt only important what the United States and Turkey agreed to with an European member, but what decisions the entire EU will take.

    On Saturday, the Belgian premier denied claims that Turkey has been assured of the Aegean Sea and Cyprus exclusion from any future European Union forces operational responsibility.
