  • [01] Defence minister: Ukraine crisis must not lead back to zero-sum game

    ANA-MPA - The relations of the West with Russia are not a zero-sum game, and mutual understanding along with international rule must prevail, Defence Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos said on Monday from Boston.

    Prior to the start of a congress on the future of Europe held at Harvard University, where he was keynote speaker, Avramopoulos said, "During these critical hours, diplomacy must rule and a political solution must be found. It is not just the peaceful resolution of a regional crisis that is at stake, but global stability as well."

    The Defence minister said, "We have two enemies before us: nationalistic extremism and totalitarianism," adding that the post-World War II period "proved that our relations, between the Western world and Russia were not a zero-sum game. On the contrary, a modus operandi was found to bring the sought-after stability."

    This hour is "again a time to reaffirm our commitment to the value of mutual empathy and understanding," he added, "which is the heart of international law," and expressed his optimism that the crisis will be overcome.

    [02] High attendance at Greek kiosk in New York travel show

    ANA-MPA - Greece is a popular holiday destination for American tourists, according to travel agents and other visitors to the Greek National Tourism Organisation (EOT) kiosk at the New York Times Travel Show in New York City, that took place from February 28 to March 2.

    The show was held at the Javits Centre, and is held annually.

    It was a great success and a very important exhibit for Greece, the head of EOT's office in the United States, Grigoria Kamaterou, told ANA-MPA. "There was a long line of visitors at the Greek kiosk who wanted information on tourism in Greece. Most knew quite a few things about Greek history and the islands and were looking for the one thing that differentiated Greece from other places they had been to; they knew they could find this difference, this uniqueness, in Greece," she said.

    She added, "Greece as a product is outstanding by itself, and the only thing we do is to showcase it."

    The Greek kiosk was visited by government officials and travel agents from other show participants, including Greek Consul General in New York George Iliopoulos, Consul Manolis Kambourakis and Press and Communications Officer Nikos Papakonstantinou.
