  • [01] Papandreou visits Athens-area high school

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou on Tuesday visited a high school in the central Athens district of Kypseli, where he met with pupils and teaching staff.

    In comments to accompanying reporters, Papandreou expressed a view that the government has failed in its education policy, whereas for PASOK it is a "primary issue".

    He also appeared highly critical of the government over a recent incident in Thessaloniki, where television footage showed a college student being roughed up by several individuals later identified as undercover police officers on Friday in the vicinity where protests recorded.

    Papandreou said "several ministers" would have already resigned in other European countries over such an incident.

    The victim was later identified as a Cypriot man studying in Thessaloniki.

    [02] Czech president begins visit Wednesday

    The President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus, will begin an official two-day visit here on Wednesday at the invitation of his Greek counterpart Karolos Papoulias.

    Both leaders are scheduled to have talks on Wednesday, followed by the signing of a bilateral tourism cooperation agreement by the governments of the two countries.

    Klaus, who will be accompanied by his wife, will later meet with main opposition PASOK president George Papandreou.

    Additionally, the Czech first couple will be the honored guests at an evening reception hosted by Papoulias.

    Klaus will meet with Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Thursday, as well as with Interior and Public Administration Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos.
