  • [01] GREEK ALTERNATE FOREIGN MINISTER VISITS ISRAEL

    Alternate foreign minister Yannos Kranidiotis is leaving tonight on a two-day working visit to Israel. He is to convey an invitation from Greek prime minister Kostas Simitis to Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak to visit Greece. During his stay in Israel, Mr Kranidiotis will meet with senior members of the new Israeli government, among them Israeli foreign minister David Levi. His talks will focus on the course of Greek-Israeli bilateral relations, developments in the region as well as the forthcoming Israeli-Palestinian meeting which will take place in Athens in early September. The meeting will be held in the context of a Greek initiative dubbed the Athens dialogue, which is part of the confidence-building measures decided upon at Wye Plantation. The Greek alternate foreign minister will also meet with Greek Orthodox Patriarch Diodoros of Jerusalem and president of the Palestinian authority Yasser Arafat.

    [02] GERMAN CHANCELLOR EXPECTED IN GREECE IN OCTOBER

    German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder is to visit Athens on October 4, returning a visit to Bonn last year by Greek prime minister Kostas Simitis. The agenda of the talks between the two leaders is expected to focus on issues of bilateral and mutual interest.

    [03] PRIME MINISTER MADE HONORARY CITIZEN OF SIPHNOS ISLAND

    The local authorities of the island of Siphnos have decided to honor prime minister Kostas Simitis' predilection for their island, where he has been spending his summer vacation in the past few years, by proclaiming him honorary citizen of Siphnos. The ceremony will be held on the island on 12 August. After his summer holidays, Mr Simitis is scheduled to pay various visits abroad. On 24 August he will pay a one-day visit to Albania, while visits to Bulgaria, Romania and probably the FYROM are being prepared through diplomatic channels. On 3, 4 and 5 September, Mr Simitis will be in Thessaloniki for the International Trade Fair and is to deliver the customary speech on economic policy. From 15 to 21 September, Mr Simitis will pay his first official visit to China.

    [04] GREEK PRESIDENT DECLARES OPEN NATO RESERVE OFFICERS MEETING

Finally, referring to Cyprus' accession to the EU, Mr Kyprianou said accession might lead to a Cyprus solution and stressed this would depend on the stand to be adopted by European countries.

    [06] ILLEGAL RE-OPENING OF HOTEL IN TURKISH-OCCUPIED CYPRUS

    The renovation works and the reopening of the hotel Salamis Bay in Famagusta in the Turkish-occupied northern part of Cyprus is a new provocative act on the part of the self-styled Turkish Cypriot state of Rauf Denktash, especially at a time when strong international efforts are being made for the resumption of the intercommunal dialogue and the settlement of the Cyprus issue. Reports said the hotel will start operating, although illegally, on August 21st, while the opening ceremony will take place on September 3rd.
