  • [01] PM calls for continued dialogue on security issues in Barcelona

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis underlined the need to continue dialogue on defence and security issues in the Mediterranean region during his address at the EuroMed Summit in Barcelona on Monday.

    Karamanlis called for the creation of a zone of stability and security in the wider Mediterranean region and unconditionally condemned all forms of terrorism as criminal and unjustified, while noting the need for international collaboration against terrorism in the framework of international law.

    On economic issues, the Greek premier referred to the establishment of Free Trade Zones up to 2010 and the creation of a suitable investment climate, as well as the adoption of an action programme in 2006 in order to reduce pollution in the Mediterranean by the year 2020.

    He also emphasised education, the fight against illiteracy, further education for adults and international cooperation between universities, as well as referring to issues of gender equality and protection of children's rights.

    Karamanlis spoke of the need to reinforce Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in tackling immigration issues, especially illegal immigration and the exploitation of immigrants by human trafficking rings, which he said were responsible for destabilising society.

    Finally, the Greek premier referred to the importance of dialogue between cultures and to combat stereotypes, xenophobia and racism.
