  • [01] Papandreou in Madrid for socialists' con'f

    MADRID (ANA-MPA) -- Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou arrived in Madrid on Sunday to participate in a European Socialist Party conference being held in the Spanish capital on Monday and Tuesday.

    Papandreou is scheduled to participate in a reception on Sunday evening of socialist party leaders. Among others, the former Greek foreign minister is due to have meetings with Portuguese Prime Minister Jose Socrates and Bulgarian Premier Sergei Stanishev.

    Additionally, Papandreou will meet with the conference's host, Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero.

    One of the primary issues on the agenda of European socialists will be formulating a manifesto to tackle HIV proliferation and to offer aid to AIDS sufferers, as Monday is the World AIDS Day.

    The ongoing international economic crisis and socialists' strategy ahead of the 2009 European Parliament elections will also be on the agenda of talks.
