  • [01] PASOK leader meets with Iran's nuclear negotiator

    Main opposition PASOK President George Papandreou said he was in favour of a diplomatic and peaceful solution that would result from multilateral and meaningful negotiations and in accordance with international law in remarks he made to reporters after meeting with visiting Ali Larijani, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, in Athens on Tuesday.

    Papandreou stressed that peace is achieved with respect towards international law and legitimacy, through friendship and cooperation between nations.

    He added that this is the only possible way, suggesting to the involved parties to refrain from making provocative statements that only fuel tensions and heighten the crisis.

    Papandreou reiterated that PASOK is opposed to "a new Iraq" but also voiced concerns regarding the proliferation of nuclear weapons, noting that they constitute a major threat.

    Finally, he said that "we have to revive the peace movement" and added that he was in favour of reducing nuclear arms.
