  • [01] Karamanlis arrives in Singapore, rules out imminent elections

    SINGAPORE (ANA-MPA - A. Panagopoulos) Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis arrived in Singapore on Saturday afternoon local time for the first stopover on a tour that will include official visits to Australia, New Zealand and Vietnam. In statements to reporters on board the flight from Athens, meanwhile, he ruled out imminent elections, saying there was "still some time to go".

    On his arrival, Karamanlis was received by Singapore's President Sellapan Rama Nathan for talks that covered political and economic ties between Greece and Singapore.

    Afterwards, the Greek premier said he had had a "useful meeting and talks" with Singapore's president and that relations between the two countries were very good, while it was possible to enhance cooperation in trade and shipping.

    "I hope that with the signature in a short space of time of a shipping agreement, relations will be strengthened even further. Singapore is a key station for the shipping interests of the Greek commercial fleet," Karamanlis stressed.

    The meeting also focused on expanding cooperation between Singapore and the European Union, while Karamanlis briefed Nathan on developments concerning the Cyprus issue and Kosovo.

    Singapore's president, who visited Greece three years ago, invited the Greek prime minister to carry out a longer, official visit to Singapore and also requested that Greece send exhibits to a museum being constructed in the tiny island country, so that its young people might learn about classical-era ancient Greece and Greek culture.
