    Deputy Defence Minister Loukas Apostolidis is to depart for a two-day visit to Bosnia-Herzegovina on Thursday, during which he will visit Greek troops serving with international peacekeeping missions in that country and have a series of high-level meetings.

    According to a defence ministry announcement on Wednesday, the minister is scheduled to meet SFOR commander Lieut. General John Sylvester on Thursday in Sarajevo, followed by a meeting with his federal Bosnian counterpart Ferid Buljubasic to sign a protocol of military cooperation and training for next year.

    Apostolidis will then travel to the Bosnian Serb republic, where he will pay a visit to the Kasido hospital, which is being rebuilt and equipped with funds from the Greek defence ministry.

    On Friday morning, Apostolidis is due in Banja Luka for a meeting with Bosnian Serb Defence Minister Slobodan Bilic, with whom he will sign a programme of military cooperation for next year.

    This will be followed by a meeting with the Bosnian Serb republic's leadership, including President Mirko Sarovic, Vice-President Dragan Cavic, Prime Minister Mladen Ivanic and Parliament speaker Dragan Kalinic.

    Apostolidis will be accompanied on his trip, which ends on Friday, by the head of the Greek army and representatives of the other branches of the armed forces.

    [02] Power plant fire causes extensive blackout on Christmas Day

    26/12/2001 21:36:54

    A fire that broke out on Tuesday night at a Public Power Corporation (PPC) electricity plant at Aghios Dimitrios in Kozani caused a blackout throughout most of northern Greece and Attica during the evening of Christmas Day.

    The fire was caused by a malfunction in a central switch on the first floor of the installation, cutting off the power supply to several prefectures in Greece.

    Power was restored to the areas affected shortly afterwards, with the power stations of Amyntaios and Kardia covering the shortfall.
