    [02] FM sharply criticises fYRoM PM's 'no-show' at UN

    NEW YORK (ANA-MPA) -- Greek Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas was highly critical of former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski in statements on Thursday, following the latter's refusal to visit New York and meet with Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou.

    "All the time and all the energy that the Skopje side now expends in its effort to create certain impressions that act in the wrong direction; if it instead invested these in finding a solution to the 'name issue' then we would be in a very different position," Droutsas underlined. (ANA-MPA)

    Gruevski was "creating impressions that do not contribute at all to a solution," he added.

    While in New York, Droutsas participated in an informal NATO-Russia foreign ministers' meeting held on Wednesday and a working dinner for EU foreign ministers and their Russian counterpart. He also had a round of meetings with several of his counterparts from other countries that will continue on Thursday.

    On Wednesday night he attended a dinner for leaders, foreign ministers and officials of SE European countries that was also attended by Turkish President Abdullah Gul and Bulgarian Premier Boyko Borisov. (ANA-MPA)

    [03] Karamanlis reply in writing

    (ANA-MPA) -- Former prime minister Costas Karamanlis on Thursday announced that he will send a written reply to a relevant preliminary Parliament committee of inquiry currently probing the Vetopedi land swap affair, the chairman of the committee, MP Dimitris Tsironis, said.

    He added that Karamanlis told him, in a same-day telephone communication, that he will send the letter on the entire issue next week.

    Tsironis added that "all of us would prefer for Mr. Karamanlis to appear in person. (ANA-MPA) However, you cannot violently summons a former prime minister".

    Meanwhile, in a related development, main opposition New Democracy (ND) deputies participating on the same committee have demanded that a report be composed on exactly what, if any, damages were incurred in the property exchanges between the state and the Vetoed Monastery. The opposition MPs also charged that the ruling PASOK majority on the committee does not know whether the state sustained a monetary damage. (ANA-MPA)
