    [01] GOVERNMENT RESPONDS TO CRITICISM BY OPPOSITION

    Press and Media Minister mr Tilemahos Hitiris responded today to the criticism by the ex-premier and honorary president of the main opposition party of New Democracy mr Constantinos Mitsotakis by saying that what mr Miutsotakis has said in his interview with the revue "Financial Mailman" is serious as well as it is dangerous.

    The Minister characterised the ideas expressed by mr Mitsotakis as well as the leader of the party mr Miltiades Evert as confusing.

    At the same time mr Hitiris refused to comment on the criticism by ruling PASOK MP and ex- European Union Commissioner ms Vasso Papandreou and stressed that he does not want to make any comments on issues regarding the in-party function of PASOK.

    [02] THE ISSUE OF GERMAN WAR REPARATIONS TO GREECE REMAINS OPEN

    Greek Alternate Foreign Minister Georgios Romeos replying to a question tabled by deputies from the ruling PASOK party and the Communist party, stated to Parliament today that the question of German war reparations to Greece remains open and added that the greek government has already conveyed its reaction on the recent statements made by german Chancellor Helmut Kohl.

    The german Chancellor had stated that based on the London agreement there was no issue of war reparations. According to mr.Romeos, the German war reparations were not, as mr. Kohl claimed, compensated for through Germany's contribution to the European Union Cohesion Fund.

    The greek alternate Foreign Minister stated that the London agreement can not apply to the reparations issue after the reunification of Germany adding that no statute limitations were applicable to the issue.

    [03] NEW HOPES FOR THE FIGHT AGAINST AIDS

    A number of advanced drugs that are being tested in labs all over the world are promising drastic treatment for the AIDS carriers and patients, according to prof.Montagner who was the first to isolate the AIDS virus in his laboratory in 1984.

    Prof.Montagner made this statement today speaking in the 13th European Conference on Pathology in Athens stressing that work is being done aiming at helping the AIDS I-V carriers in such a way that they will never become AIDS patients. He said that this can happen only if the density of the AIDS viruses in the carriers of the disease is significantly reduced adding that there is hope that in a few months there will be results.

    Prof. Montagner in a joint press conference with professor of Pathology in the University of Athens, mr.Raptis underlined that the scientific research for an effective vaccine against the AIDS virus was until now unsuccessful because the AIDS virus undergoes mutations and multiplies.

    Prof. Montagner stressed that the disease's development directly relates to the initial stage of the individual's infection stressing that the first weeks after the contraction of the disease are the most critical and as soon as an individual is informed that is an AIDS carrier must start treatment immediately.

    The french professor appeared optimistic regarding the discovery of a new reliable diagnostic test which will be able to trace the AIDS virus in the blood one week after is contracted.

    The already existing tests can trace the AIDS virus three weeks after the disease is contracted. According to prof.Montagner, because of this delay there is a possibility of 1/600.000 for an individual to get AIDS through blood transfusion.
