    BELGRADE (ANA - V. Mourtis) Prime Minister Costas Simitis on Thursday arrived in Belgrade for the first official visit by a Greek premier to the city in 16 years. In statements to reporters, Simitis said the main aim of his visit was to promote bilateral economic ties with Yugoslavia and that his presence in Belgrade signalled the start of a new period in relations between the two countries.

    Simitis kicked off the two-day visit by penning his signature on a series of agreements between Greece and Yugoslavia for bilateral economic and technical cooperation in road and air transport, along with his Yugoslav counterpart Dragisa Pesic.

    The Greek prime minister later described his meeting with Pesic as warm and friendly and stressed that the two countries shared a common goal in desiring cooperation, peace and development in the Balkans. He underlined that this goal could not be achieved without Yugoslavia's participation.

    09/05/2002 23:48:16

    Alternate Foreign Minister Tassos Yiannitsis on Thursday evening addressed an event on Europe's Day organised at the Zappeion Hall by the European Commission representation in Athens.

    The minister's address focused on Greece's twenty-year presence in the European process as a full member of the European Union saying that the country has gained a great deal. The expected enlargement of the EU, through which Cyprus will become an EU member, demands tremendous reforms on an institutional level but mostly on a European citizen's level, he said.
