  • [01] Karamanlis, Merkel discuss Euro constitution, Kosovo during Athens meeting

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis concluded a meeting in Athens early Friday afternoon with visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with both leaders fielding questions afterwards on issues ranging from the draft European constitution to the Kosovo issue and, expectedly, bilateral ties, including defence contracts.

    Merkel, in Athens for a lightning half-day visit for talks with Greek leadership, later departed with the Greek premier for a downtown Athens hotel, where she will address an event hosted by the Greek-German chamber of commerce.

    Meanwhile, a government spokesman a day earlier announced that Karamanlis will leave on Monday morning for a 24-hour visit to Sarajevo.

    Roussopoulos said that Karamanlis was due to arrive in Sarajevo at 9:30 a.m. local time, and an official welcoming ceremony would be held for the Greek premier at the Council of Ministers building, followed by a private meeting with Council of Ministers chairman Nikola Spiric.

    Karamanlis will also attend the inauguration ceremony of the Greece-Bosnia-Herzegovina Friendship Building, followed by an official luncheon with Spiric, after which the Greek prime minister will visit Camp Butmir, the headquarters of the European Union Force in Bosnia and Herzegovina (EUFOR).

    Karamanlis is slated to depart early Tuesday for Athens.

    [02] Archbishop Chistodoulos exits hospital

    Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos was released from the Aretaio Hospital in Athens on Friday, 42 days after his admission. He underwent surgery to remove a cancerous growth from his large intenstine and also received initial treatment for an unrelated tumor in his liver.

    A frail and emotional Christodoulos told reporters that he is thankful to all those who prayed for his recovery.

    The Archbishop will depart for Miami, Florida after Aug. 10 to undergo a liver transplant operation.
