  • [01] FM on general elections, Cyprus issue

    Greece's Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis, in an interview she gave to Sunday's edition of "Eleftherotypia" newspaper, sees recourse to the polls, at any moment, if there are reactions to the changes which the ruling New Democracy (ND) party is advancing. However, she views that the general elections will be conducted normally, at some moment, towards the end of the four-year tenure. Bakoyannis also announced that there will be new mobility in the Cyprus issue in 2007, both on a United Nations level, as well as in the European Union.

    Regarding Greek-Turkish relations, the foreign minister assessed that no major decisions will be taken before the Turkish general elections next November.

    Meanwhile, Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos, in an interview he gave to Cyprus' "Haravghi" newspaper, stressed that Nicosia "is determined to resist with all the means it possesses, the overturning which is being advanced by European Union member-states for the upgrading of the (Turkish Cypriot) pseudo-state."

    President Papadopoulos stressed that "the so-called isolation of the Turkish Cypriots is being used as an alibi by Turkey so as not to implement its European obligations."

    To a question whether he ascertained an identity of positions between the EU and the Anglo-Americans, Papadopoulos answered negatively. The Cyprus president added that "a small group of EU member-states "openly support, even in violation of the principles on which the EU's existence and operation is based on, Turkey's unimpeded accession."

    [02] Deputy DM visits Bosnia-Herzegovina

    Greece's Deputy Defence Minister Vassilis Michaloliakos on Monday, Christmas Day, visited the headquarters of the Multinational Task Force - North, of the operation "Althea", in Bosnia-Herzegovina, where he met with the Greek force. Michaloliakos was given a tour of the headquarters, was briefed on the work of MTF-N and particularly of the Greece force, the members with whom he exchanged gifts and best wishes.

    Following his visit, the deputy defence minister said:"Greece's position is of particular geostrategic importance. Geography is a factor which unavoidably affected and affects the foreign policy of every country."
