  • [01] Papandreou backs action on Libya

    PARIS (ANA-MPA - O. Tsipira) The international community will move to enforce the UN Security Council's decisions for Libya, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said here on Saturday after attending a meeting of European, U.S. and Arab leaders on Libya hosted by France.

    "Today's meeting showed the determination of the international community to enforce the decisions of the United Nations, especially for the protection of human life in Libya and, of course, on the need to implement a truce.

    Unfortunately, despite the assurance of the regime in Libya that the decisions will be implemented and that a truce will be implemented, these are proved false by the reality, by their actions, actions of violence. That is why the international community will move for the implementation of the decisions," Papandreou said.

    [02] SI presidium meets in Athens

    ANA-MPA - Prime Minister George Papandreou addressed a morning session of the Socialist International Presidium meeting taking place at the Acropolis Museum in Athens on Saturday, focusing mainly on events in Libya. The Greek prime minister, who is currently the SI president, later departed for a lightning visit to Paris, in order to attend an international meeting on the same issue.

    He is due back in Athens later on Saturday for the SI presidium's working dinner at 9:00 p.m.

    In his morning address, he said that the international community had sent a clear message through the United Nations Security Council resolution on Libya, opening the way for member-states to intervene for the protection of Libya's citizens.

    "The message of the international community via UN Security Council resolution 1973 is clear: We will on no account tolerate the murder of innocent citizens and we are greatly concerned about developments in Libya at the time when the Libyan government strikes innocent citizens," Papandreou stressed.

    [03] Protests over fares, landfill site

    The municipality of Patras and local residents set up road blocks at the Rio road tolls on Saturday, demanding a solution to the problems arising with the city's overburdened landfill site. Further north in Pella and Florina, another protest was underway by local residents, environmental groups and left-wing movements against hikes in public transport fares and road tolls and recent cuts in railway services to the region.

    Protestors boarded the train to Edessa and then gathered outside the new railway station, unfurling a banner that demanded the resumption of the Thessaloniki-Florina rail service, which is to be stopped between Edessa and Florina.
