  • [01] ÍD on visa waiver, PM's trips

    On the abolition of the visa requirement for Greeks wishing to travel to the US announced by Washington on Tuesday, main opposition New Democracy(ND) spokesman Panos Panagiotopoulos said that ND considers this a positive development, and cited an announcement issued earlier in the day by ND former foreign minister Dora Bakoyannis's office outlining all the actions taken under the preceding government of Costas Karamanlis up until June 2009 when the relevant agreements for the process of Greece entering the US Visa Waiver Program were signed.

    Panagiotopoulos further said that ND requests of the prime minister, upon his return to Athens, to immediately brief the political party leaders and parliament on the content of his talks in Germany, France and the US and the outcome.

    He noted that, it arises from the government's announcements, that there is strong mobility in Greek-Turkish relations, with an exchange of letters between the Greek and Turkish prime ministers while, "according to Mr. Papandreou, a visit by Mr. Erdogan (Turkish prime minister) to Athens is pending in the early summer", while any developments on the FYROM name issue should be expected at around the NATO summit in the Fall of 2010.
