  • [01] Greece takes over chair of sanctions committee for Sudan

    NEW YORK (ANA - P. Panagiotou) Greece, currently a non-permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, has been assigned the chairmanship of the United Nations sanctions committee for Sudan.

    After the conclusion of Friday's Security Council meeting, the Greek UN ambassador Adamantios Vassilakis announced that Greece had been unanimously voted to head the sanctions committee for Sudan, provided for under UN resolution 1591 (2005).

    He said the committee will be in charge of monitoring the implementation of specialised sanctions and an arms embargo in the three provinces of Darfur, as well as regularly briefing the Security Council on the progress made, starting from the coming week.

    According to diplomatic sources, the UN committee could play a decisive role in dealing with the crisis in Darfur, western Sudan, where tens of thousands are said to have died.

    [02] President Papoulias arrives on Kastellorizo to celebrate Easter

    President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias arrived on the island of Kastellorizo on Saturday afternoon in order to celebrate Orthodox Easter.

    Papoulias travelled to the island by helicopter from nearby Rhodes, accompanied by the Prefect of the Dodecanese islands Yiannis Mahairidis. He was greeted on his arrival by Aegean Minister Aristotelis Pavlidis, Kastellorizo Mayor Pavlos Panygiris and the head of the Dodecanese police Aristides Kartanos.

    The president will attend the Easter midnight mass at the Church of St. Constantine on the island, while on Sunday morning he will be declared an honorary citizen of Kastellorizo at a special ceremony.

    On Sunday evening he will meet men and officers of the security forces to exchange Easter greetings and will stay on the island until Tuesday afternoon.
