  • [01] Greek, Turkish parties take anti-war line

    Two Greek and Turkish political parties on Saturday took a joint stand against use of their countries' territory for war, and against the deployment of nuclear weapons.

    Signing the declaration were the leaders of the parliamentary opposition Coalition of the Left, Movements and Ecology, Alekos Alavanos, and of the neighbouring country's Freedom and Solidarity Party, Hairi Kozanoglu.

    "At a time when a new war by the Bush government is threatening our region, this time against Iran, in which the use of nuclear weapons has not been ruled out, we believe that the top priority is to strive for peace, and we are committed to make every effort to promote this at all levels - regional, European and global," the parties said.

    "Our countries' territories must not be used to facilitate the war, and we call on the UN Security Council to reject pressure by the US and rule out any option to use violence in the crisis around Iran's nuclear programme," they added.

    [02] Cyprus welcomes ties with Egypt

    Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos on Saturday welcomed ties with Egypt and the country's lasting support of efforts to resolve the Cyprus issue.

    "Egypt is a steady friend," Papadopoulos told the ANA-MPA in an interview after a meeting with President Hosni Mubarak.

    "In the Cyprus issue, Egypt is unlikely to change policy, as it supports matters of principle and it's unlikely to change positions for political expediency. There is full support," Papadopoulos noted.

    He is the first president of Cyprus to visit the Arab country since Archbishop Makarios travelled to Cairo in 1966.

    "Friendly relations between Cyprus and Egypt have gone very well since Makarios' era, and all these years Egypt has been a steady supporter," Papadopoulos said.

    "My visit aims to strengthen and revive this good climate between the two countries, and various joint commercial and economic activities," he added.
