    23/09/2003 23:38:03

    President of the Republic Kostis Stephanopoulos on Tuesday received visiting Hungarian President Ferenc Madl, currently in Greece on an official visit.

    Madl's talks with Stephanopoulos covered cooperation between Greece and Hungary in the framework of NATO and the European Union, of which Hungary is to become a full member on May 1, 2004.

    The two men also discussed business investments, Euro-Atlantic ties and the new European Constitution.

    Madl asked that the two countries intensify cooperation within NATO organs, noting that Budapest attached great importance to the Alliance, and asked that Greece support Hungary's request that the new EU constitution contain articles for the protection of ethnic minority rights.

    Stephanopoulos replied that Greece supported the processes leading to the creation of an EU constitution and said that those drafting the text had given the necessary guarantees for the full coverage of such rights.
