  • [01] EU FOREIGN MINISTERS CALL FOR AID TO QUAKE-HIT ATTICA

    The EU foreign ministers, meeting in Luxembourg yesterday, called on the European Commission to provide assistance to Greece for facing the consequences of the recent devastating earthquake in Attica.

    [02] PRIME MINISTER PROMISES HOUSING FOR HOMELESS

    During a visit to quake-hit areas in Athens yesterday, prime minister Kostas Simitis said that despite the fact that the total cost of the damage caused by the earthquake on 7th September has not yet been fully estimated, the government will meet its obligations towards those made homeless by the temblor, regardless of time, effort or cost. He added that those who were unable to secure prefabricated housing provided by the government would receive rent subsidies or would be assisted to stay in hotels. He also promised that one person in each family which lost a member in the quake would be given employment. In addition, he re-confirmed that by the end of this month, 5,000 prefabricated homes would be made available, and that all secondary inspections of damaged houses would have been completed. Meanwhile 50,000 homeless families were registered in the first census of the quake-stricken population in 33 municipalities in Attica, while a census will be held in 22 more municipalities in Attica and 4 in Viotia next weekend. Furthermore 22 special offices will start operating tomorrow to receive applications for rent subsidies or house sharing and grant loans for rebuilding and repairs.

    [03] AMERICAN PRESIDENT'S VISIT TO GREECE MOVED UP

    American president Bill Clinton's planned visit to Greece will be held on 13th November, a week earlier than scheduled, at the American side's request. After his visit to Greece, president Clinton will go to Ankara and then Constantinople to take part in the summit of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

    [04] GREEK PRIME MINISTER SENDS MESSAGE TO TURKISH COUNTERPART

    Greek ambassador in Ankara Ioannis Korantis has conveyed a message from prime minister Kostas Simitis to his Turkish counterpart Bulent Ecevit for a continuation of dialogue between the two countries. Mr Simitis said in his message Greece expected Ankara's actual positive response, both concerning Greek-Turkish disputes and the Cyprus issue, in the wake of the steps Greece made to create a positive climate in Greek-Turkish relations. For his part, Mr Ecevit said that whenever Turkey and Greece turned to bilateral dialogue, they achieved progress, also pointing out that Greek-Turkish disputes should be differentiated from the Cyprus issue.

    [05] DEFENCE MINISTER TO SIGN AGREEMENTS WITH ISRAEL

    National defence minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos is to sign in Tel Aviv tomorrow cooperation agreements in the defence industry sector and the conducting of joint military exercises with the Israeli navy.
