  • [01] Greece, China sign memorandum on Olympic security

    Greece and China signed a cooperation memorandum on Thursday regarding Olympic security ahead of the 2008 Beijing Games.

    The memorandum falls within the framework of cooperation between Chinese authorities and organisers and Greek authorities and police who are transferring the experience and know-how they gained from staging the 2004 Olympics.

    The memorandum was signed in Beijing by Greek Police Chief Lt. General G. Angelakos and Beijing's Head of Police Zhenchuan Ma, within the context of the five-day visit of a Greek delegation to China headed by Public Order Minister George Voulgarakis.

    According to the agreement, any issues that arise as Beijing prepares for the 2008 Olympics, will be resolved through the cooperation of Beijing's Coordinating Centre for Olympic Games Security and the Greek ministry's Security Studies Centre.

    After the signing, Voulgarakis said that "the cooperation between Greece and China on Olympic Games security does not only concern our excellent bilateral relations, but is mainly associated with the two countries' cultural heritage."

    He added that "Greece's objective, as the birthplace of the Olympic Games, is to contribute as much as possible so that the Beijing Olympiad be held in a festive and safe environment. The People's Republic of China is proceeding at a fast and steady pace. I am certain that in 2008 we will experience one of the most successful, and of course grand, Olympic Games in history."
