    [04] Simitis receives Hungarian President Madl; EU issues discussed

    24/09/2003 23:36:38

    Greece and Hungarys common interest in the European Unions future as well as strengthening ties between Athens and Budapest dominated talks here on Wednesday between Prime Minister Costas Simitis and visiting Hungarian President Ferenc Madl.

    The meeting at the premiers office came a day after Greek President Kostis Stephanopoulos received Madl.

    Simitis stressed that Athens wants to aid in Hungarys adjustment to the new European Union reality, as well as increasing coordination amongst all EU member-states in light of ongoing work over a new European Constitution. Finally, he noted that Hungary hosted many ethnic Greeks in the aftermath of a civil war in the country (1946-49)

    On his part, Madl expressed his satisfaction over Athens contribution so far to his country EU accession process, noting that bilateral and economic relations have been very healthy for some time.

    Additionally, he referred to the VII European (road) corridor as one area where the two countries can cooperate even more within the Union framework.

    In reference to the timely issue of Europes future, Madl said Budapest backs the notion of a strong Europe in terms of security and foreign policy.

    ?The moment of truth will come at the Intergovernmental Conference. Europe will be called on to prove whether it is able to express its view over its own future. I am, however, certain that until then whatever outstanding issues remaining will have been resolved,? he said.
