  • [01] Deterrence & foreign policy to establish security for Greece, premier says

    07/05/2002 23:11:01

    Greece's national security problem will be tackled in two ways, with the support of its deterrent force and with the government's foreign policy, which aims at establishing conditions for peace and security in the region, Prime Minister Costas Simitis said on Tuesday during a speech in the extreme southeastern Aegean island of Kastellorizo.

    ''Greece is not alone at the edge of Europe anymore. It is part of the European Union, which has set procedures for the resolution of any and all crucial problems neighboring countries think they have with Greece, always in the framework of the implementation of international law and international regulations,'' Simitis added.

    The Greek premier also expressed his optimism that ''in a few years' time the surroundings will have changed drastically, these years, however, will not be easy and without confrontations''.

    [02] FM spokesman denies reports of Nativity Church Palestinians arriving in Greece

    Foreign Ministry spokesman Panagiotis Beglitis on Tuesday categorically denied reports that Greece would accept Palestinians now trapped in the Nativity Church in Bethlehem and are slated for exile from the Palestinian territories.

    He added that Greece will continue its mediation effort to lift the impasse, but that did not mean that Greece would accept Palestinians on its territories.

    07/05/2002 23:09:46

    Greek main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Costas Karamanlis on Tuesday sent a congratulatory telegram to French President Jacques Chirac in light of his reelection and to newly appointed Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin.

    ''Allow me to express my warmest congratulations for your reelection to the highest office of the French Republic. The historic dimension of your victory reaffirms the commitment of the French people to the grand democratic ideals,'' Karamanlis' telegram said.

    In his telegram to Raffarin, Karamanlis stressed ''the important issues, which your government is called on to face, which in turn are in their majority common problems to both our countries, need, as elsewhere in Europe, a strategy of changes, for which you have the necessary credentials''.
