    [03] Simitis: EU resolute in fight against terrorism

    26/06/2003 23:47:30

    WASHINGTON (ANA - T. Ellis) -- Greek Prime Minister and European Council President-in-office Costas Simitis stressed here on Wednesday that the European Union was committed to the fight against terrorism, as implementation of international law and the prevalence of law and order in Europe and the world was in the Union's best interests.

    Speaking at a separate press conference following talks with US President George W. Bush and European Commission President Romano Prodi during an EU-US Summit at the White House, Simitis briefed Greek reporters on the agenda of talks which he said included a variety of issues: trans-Atlantic relations, the Middle East and the role of the ''Hamas'' group, the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), the fight against terrorism, the signing of two EU-US judicial cooperation agreements, the Galileo programme, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Balkans, Africa, Cyprus, trade and financial matters, the agreement for the use of hydrogen, Iran, North Korea, genetically modified products, the ''open skies'' programme as well as the EU's new defence strategy and cooperation with NATO.

    With regard to the Cyprus issue, which is of particular importance to Greece, Simitis said he had pointed to the US president the need for UN-sponsored talks, and for the Turkish side to be pressured into changing its stance on the issue.

    He said the US president had acknowledged that and pledged his support for efforts to re-start talks.
