    NICOSIA (ANA-MPA) -- Greek Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas on Friday called for SyriaÔs leadership to stop the violence on the streets of the country, during his talks here on Mideast and North Africa developments with Cyprus President Dimitris Christofias

    As regarding Libya, the Greek minister reiterated AthensÔ position over a pressing need for serious efforts to find a solution.

    Finally, he categorically condemned ThursdayÔs terrorist attack in Marrakesh, as well as any other forms of violence. "Allow me to assure Morocco and its people that Greece is next to them with solidarity," he said. (ANA-MPA)
