  • [01] PASOK leader announces initiative on Greek-Turkish relations

  • [01] PASOK leader announces initiative on Greek-Turkish relations

    Main opposition PASOK leader said Thursday that he was launching an initiative for forging a new strategy on Greek-Turkish relations, speaking to reporters after a one-hour meeting with President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias. He said that he would ask to see Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and the other political party leaders for this purpose, adding that it was also the reason he had sought this meeting with Papoulias.

    Papandreou said that "we are all monitoring this climate of tension, with Turkey's provocative actions", and expressed concern regarding the country's security due to the Turkish provocations.

    The main opposition leader said it was imperative that a new strategy be formulated, one that would guarantee Greece's sovereign rights, and the security and confidence of every Greek citizen, as well as open up new horizons for cooperation and peace in the region, as well as create a "share" of peace for health, education and growth.

    This road exists, Papandreou said, noting that he knew this from his own term as foreign minister (in the preceding PASOK governments) and from the initiatives he had undertaken in that capacity.
