  • [01] PASOK leader contacts IAEA director

  • [01] PASOK leader contacts IAEA director

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) leader and Socialist International (SI) George Papandreou on Thursday had a telephone conversation with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Mohamed ElBaradei and discussed the Iran crisis.

    As stated by Papandreou in his speech at PASOK's Parliamentary Group meeting on Thursday evening, ElBaradei informed him that if there was the necessary political will, the clash could be avoided.

    Papandreou criticised the government which "is observing the events and is not undertaking any initiative." He added that if Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis "continues not to take any initiatives, he will be compelled to handle the situation from a disadvantageous position for Greece."

    Papandreou noted that "PASOK's position is a clear no to a new Iraq" and that "the solution to the problem is only diplomatic." He also stood in favour of the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, but also in support of the restriction of nuclear arsenals in the United States and in all countries which possess nuclear weapons.

    Referring to the European Social Forum which began its sessions in Athens on Thursday, Papandreou proposed for "the progressive forces of Socialist Intternational to meet in a joint initiative with the forces which are expressed by the Social Forum to revitalise the world peace movement."
