    Greek government contradicted today claims by the president of the minor opposition party of Political Spring mr Antonios Samaras according to whom United States military bases on greek territory were used for the bombardment of the Bosnian serb positions.

    Press and Media Minister mr Tilemahos Hitiris described what mr Samaras said as a firework and called on mr Samaras to be more careful since, as mr Hitiris said the Greek - US agreement was signed by him in 1990 when he was foreign minister.

    Mr Hitiris added that Greece has no right to intervene when the bases are used by NATO under a command by the UN, although there is a greek representative in the base every day.

    Greece, repeated the minister, does not want to be involved in any way in the Bosnian war.
