  • [01] Athens promises new 'road map' for Bulgaria's EU accession

    20/03/2002 14:05:43

    SOFIA (ANA) Greek Alternate Foreign Minister Tassos Yiannitsis on Tuesday praised Bulgarias efforts at effectively absorbing European Union funds and assistance, while promising that Athens' EU presidency in the first half of 2003 will implement a new ?road map? for Bulgarias EU accession prospects.

    The relative timetable covering Bulgarias EU ?road map" should be finalised in December during a Union summit in Copenhagen.

    Yiannitsis, along with Development Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos, arrived in the Bulgarian capital for talks with the neighbouring countrys leadership.

    He also touched on the issue of Athens aid to Sofia to the tune of 54 millions euros, part of the Greek governments recently approved Balkan Reconstruction Plan.

    Finally, the issue of the long-delayed Burgas-Alexandroupoli pipeline, a project first envisioned in 1994, also dominated talks between the two Greek ministers and Bulgarian leadership.
