  • [01] Taxis stay on strike after talks fall flat

    23/09/2003 21:46:20

    Taxis in Attica are to remain on strike until early on Friday morning as originally announced after talks between union representatives and the government broke down.

    Union representatives said that Transport and Communications Minister Christos Verelis had rejected the strikers' demands at a meeting on Tuesday, which meant that the four-day strike would continue as planned.

    [02] Vartholomeos continues official visit to Georgia

    23/09/2003 21:44:51

    ISTANBUL (ANA - A. Kourkoulas) - Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos said on Tuesday that the Patriarchate expressed the ''unity of the Greeks'' speaking to the Greek community of Georgia, during his address in the Church of Agios Nikolaos in Batum, during his official visit.

    ''The Ecumenical Patriarchate expressed through the centuries the unity of Greeks and we at the Phanar, day and night, we pray for them all over the world, as we pray for all our Orthodox brethren,'' Vartholomeos said.

    The local state university presented Vartholomeos with an honorary doctoral degree, during a ceremony attended by the Patriarch of Georgia Ilias.

    Earlier in the day, Vartholomeos participated in the celebrations of the millenium since the founding of the Dormition of the Theotokos Church of Bagrati, Tibilisi, which is a national symbol of the Georgian people.

    Upon his arrival at the Georgian Patriarchate in Tibilisi, Patriarch Ilias welcomed him saying that the ''Ecumenical Patriarchate is that great power, which unites all of Orthodoxy''.

    On his part, Vartholomeos noted the deep roots of Christianity in Georgia, saying that ''the Georgian people, with its faith and devotion, honored Christianity''.

    During his stay here, the Ecumenical Patriarch met with Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze.
