  • [01] Papandreou holds talks with Sarkozy

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy received Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou in Paris on Thursday afternoon in a very friendly climate. The meeting between the two leaders lasted for an hour and as Papandreou stated immediately afterwards they dealt with developments in North Africa, as well as the future of the eurozone.

    "We had the opportunity of exchanging views on two major issues. The one is the revolutionary changes in North Africa and what the EU can do at this moment towards the violence we are observing," Papandreou said to the Greek and foreign reporters immediately afterwards.

    "We also spoke of our contribution to the restructuring of many countries that are entering a process of democratisation which of course for us in Greece is of special importance. I believe that we have a common approach with France on this issue," the prime minister added.

    "The second issue is the crisis, the very big crisis I would say, and the negotiations on the issues of the eurozone that we shall have in Brussels tomorrow (Friday)," Papandreou explainerd. "We also have a common approach with France here on very many issues."

    Lastly, the prime minister stressed the support that the French people, President Sarkozy and the government have shown for the efforts and sacrifices of the Greek people. "The French have stood by our side and I would like to thank them for this," Papandreou concluded.
