  • [01] Karamanlis concludes visit to Malta

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Saturday concluded a two-day official visit to Malta, departing early in the morning for Athens following wide-ranging talks with the island nation's leadership.

    On Sunday, Karamanlis will leave for Paris to attend an off -the -agenda conference of Eurozone members, expected to focus on the EU's reaction to the ongoing international financial crisis.

    On Friday evening the Malta Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi hosted a dinner in honor of his Greek counterpart. Karamanlis, in his address, referred to the excellent relations between the two countries and to the need to develop and to maintain a closer cooperation, stressing that European citizens want Europe to confront issues such as globalisation, climate change, security and energy sources.

    He also touched on illegal migration, which plagues both countries, stressing that illegal migration is an issue that demands cooperation by all European countries because it is not a problem that affects countries on the bloc's periphery but the entire continent.

    Karamanlis added that a treaty dealing with transnational efforts to curb illegal migration is very important, but it is only the first step.

    Referring to western Balkans and Cyprus issue, Karamanlis stressed that Greece supports the former's European course, although he underlined that the good-neighborly relationships are the foundations for stability in the region. He welcomed Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Ali Mehmet Talat's recent face-to-face negotiations, stressing that it is outrageous that Turkish troops still occupy, after 34 years, a European Union member-state's territory.
