  • [01] Gov't on Copenhagen summit

    Deputy Foreign Minister Spyros Kouvelis briefed deputies and Eurodeputies on Athens' positions vis-?-vis this week's Copenhagen summit on climate change, which began on Monday and will conclude on Dec. 18.

    The Greek delegation will be headed by Prime Minister George Papandreou and will include Environment Minister Tina Birbili, Kouvelis and Deputy Environment Minister George Maniatis.

    Also participating will be six deputies, two from the ruling party and four from the opposition, four NGO representatives, including WWF and Greenpeace, as well as experts, primarily in the sectors of shipping, agriculture and economic issues.

    "Greece is in favour of a legally binding agreement with specific targets," Kouvelis said, reminding of an EU agreement for a unilateral commitment on the "20 percent targets", in which Greece participates.

    The Greek side is planning a Socialist International event during the summit, under the chairmanship of Papandreou, with the participation of socialist leaders present in the Danish capital.
