  • [01] PM addresses ND party's youth festival on Limnos, sends message of peace and cooperation to all neighbouring countries

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis addressed his ruling New Democracy party's ONNED youth organisation's festival on the island of Limnos on Friday night, titled "Presence 2005-Limnos" and focusing on the theme of "Culture and regional development."

    Karamanlis arrived in the town of Myrina, where the festival got under way, earlier in the day and visited the Myrina Archaeological Park and met with the Minister of the Aegean Aristotelis Pavlidis, deputies from the prefecture of Lesvos, the prefect of Lesvos and mayors of Limnos.

    The prime minister sent a message of peace and cooperation to all neighbouring countries during his address at the festival, a message of unity and consensus to all Greeks and a message of education and culture.

    Karamanlis also revealed that the proposal for the establishment of a University Faculty in Limnos, regarding "Sciences and Foodstuffs Technology" and having two departments, is being considered.

    He categorically condemned terrorist attacks and the upsurge of fanaticism, irrationality and hatred and expressed sympathy to the families of the victims which were left behind by the hideous crimes in London, Madrid and New York.

    Karamanlis stressed that terrorists are not entitled to invoke any ideology, any religion and any culture and it is the obligation of humanity not to submit to fear, but to strive to confront the deeper causes of international terrorism. It must intensify its efforts to achieve an international community having stronger institutions, closer ties and more prosperity for all.

    Referring to Greece, the prime minister said that it is following a strategy of peace and cooperation in the modern-day world, with vision and realism for the Europe of the common future, for Europe which is becoming more political, more democratic, more social and more effective.

    Commenting on latest developments taking place in the European Union, he said that it is proceeding with the unshakeable conviction, despite the crucial issues which appeared recently, that the EU can guarantee a better tomorrow for all member-states and its peoples.

    Karamanlis further underlined that Greece is pursuing the widening of cooperation with all peoples and the normalisation of relations with neighbouring Turkey.

    "We supported and we are supporting its European orientation with the conviction that this path, the path of absolute adjustment to the European acquis communutaire, can produce positive results both for its citizens and its neighbours," he said.

    The prime minister clarified, however, that the course depends primarily on the response of Turkey itself to the principles and values of the EU, to international rules and to international law.

    Focusing on domestic issues, Karamanlis said that his government is forging ahead with vision, wisdom and boldness in the new era.
