  • [01] Karamanlis briefed by FM Bakoyannis

  • [01] Karamanlis briefed by FM Bakoyannis

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis met with Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis on Friday and was briefed on the G-8 meeting in Trieste and the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) two-day ministerial summit that opens in Corfu on Saturday, as well as the NATO-Russia ministerial summit that will also take place on Corfu over the weekend.

    The premier also met later with transport minister Evrypides Stylianidis, who briefed Karamanlis on the initiatives being taken by his ministry.

    Bakoyannis told reporters after her meeting with the premier that the Summit is aimed at creating a different climate and relation between the West and Russia.

    ?The OSCE and the NATO-Russia Council will work on this prospect,? Bakoyannis said, adding out that the European foreign ministers will also meet to discuss the issue of Iran.

    Stylianidis said, after his own meeting with the premier, that his ministry has initiated a significant reform of the Hellenic Rail Organisation (OSE), and was determined to complete it in order to create the conditions for a modern Greek rail system and a social, ecological railway.

    He explained that, through the OSE streamlining program, all the required measures would be taken and all the new possibilities would be utilised in order that the result of the faulty or insufficient management of the previous decades would not impact either the railway itself and its employees, or the society and the Greek economy.

    "We are confident and determined that, as in the case of Olympic Airways (OA), we will be able to achieve in the case of OSE the best possible results," Stylianidis added.
