    [03] Greek, Polish premiers focus on June EU Summit during meeting in Warsaw

    08/05/2003 23:46:23

    Prime minister and European Council President-in-office Costas Simitis met with his Polish counterpart Leszek Miller in Warsaw on Thursday the eighth stop in his tour of European Union member-states and acceding countries.

    The two premiers talks lasted for more than an hour and was followed by a press conference.

    Miller said that during the meeting he had the opportunity to express his opinion concerning the preparation of the Summit's agenda, recognizing that the issues to be discussed in Thessaloniki in June will be very important.

    ''We, also, discussed Greece's experiences in its course toward the European Union and all those elements that certify that Greece, within the EU, was able to hasten reforms and its modernization,'' Miller said, adding that ''this is very important for us, since during this period we are preparing for the Polish referendum (for the ratification of accession)''.

    On his part, Simitis congratulated Poland's leadership and people for the successful accession bid and reassured the country's voters that the positive aspects of accession outweighed the negative in Greece's experience.

    He spoke of the benefits of EU funding for infrastructure projects and underlined that ''the second very positive results is that the accession to the EU aids, as it happened with Greece, to the European integration and the position of every country in the international economy''.

    ''No state, at this time, in Europe - and I believe anywhere in the world - can solve its problems without the cooperation with other states,'' Simitis said, adding that ''a specific example, we discussed with Mr. Miller today, is the issue of illegal immigration. There are hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants that cross the borders of the EU, thus this problem should be handled through coordination among countries''.
