  • [01] Australian PM on Karamanlis' visit

    Australian Prime Minister John Howard expressed his great pleasure over the weekend that his Greek counterpart, Costas Karamanlis, will be visiting Australia, and in particular the cities of Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Melbourne and Darwin, from May 21-26, accompanied by Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis.

    "Australia and Greece have very friendly relations that are also due to the presence here of a numerous Greek Community," the Australian prime minister said, adding that during Karamanlis's presence in Canberra new initiatives will be announced that will strengthen relations between the two countries even further and referring to the signing of a social insurance agreement and the mutual recognition of family law arrangements.

    Karamanlis is expected in Sydney on Monday, his first stopover in Australia, after visiting New Zealand.

    [02] Events held marking Battle of Crete

    Events were held in Crete over the weekend marking the 66th anniversary of the Battle of Crete.

    A service was held at the Allied cemetery in Souda, Hania, organised by the British Embassy in Athens.

    Present at the service was British Ambassador Simon Gass, veterans of the Battle of Crete and local officials.

    An exhibition of new stamps was also inaugurated at the port of Hania. On show at the exhibition were also older series of stamps on the Battle of Crete, which were issued in 1947 and 1991.

    ?Through philately history travels all over the world,? Hania Prefect Grigoris Arhontakis said.

    The events will continue on Monday at the Keriti Monument, while an exhibition by Hania artists will be inaugurated on the theme ?Battle of Crete - Memories?.
