    (ANA-MPA) -- Prime minister George Papandreou will call on President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on Tuesday to brief him on "all current affairs", while foreign minister Dimitris Droutsas will chair a meeting of the Council on Foreign Policy in the afternoon on regional developments, with the focus on Turkey, the Cyprus issue, the Western Balkans and the Middle East.

    Meanwhile, government spokesman George Petalotis announced that an off-the-agenda discussion on Greece's national issues will be held in parliament later in the month, during which Papandreou will brief the House in detail. (ANA-MPA)
