    [01] GREECE'S BORDERS WITH FYROM OPENED LAST NIGHT

    Inspite of the fact that the greek borders with FYROM are open since Friday midnight in accordance with article 8 of the interim agreement signed in New York between Greece and FYROM, no FYROM citizen had appeared at the border crossing of Evzoni in order to enter Greece by 2pm today.

    According to a high official in FYROM's Foreign Ministry, most of the skopjan population was not informed about the signing of the memorandum by the greek and skopjan delegations yesterday evening and as a result only a few skopjans are expected to take advantage of the open borders this weekend.

    The greek Ministry of Public Order issued guidelines to be followed by the customs officers at the border crossings, according to which FYROM's citizens will be allowed to cross the borders with Greece not by using their passports but by simply writing their names on a white piece of paper on which the entrance visa will be placed.

    Meanwhile, in a government announcement on the lifting of the embargo it was mentioned that the movement of goods will be made in accordance with the terms of the practical measures agreed by Greece and FYROM and also based on the EU customs regulations.

    [02] THE PROBLEM IN THE ARCHBISHOPRIC OF NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA IS BEING SETTLED

    The meeting in New York held between the Exarchate of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople, headed by Archbishop of Australia, Stylianos, the Synod of Bishops of the Greek- Orthodox Archbishopric of North and South America, the Archbishop of North and South America, Iakovos and members of the Archbishopric Council was completed late last night.

    After the end of the meeting Archbishop of North and South America, Iakovos refused to make any statements.

    Archbishop of Australia, Stylianos stated that there is excellent cooperation between the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the Archbishopric of North and South America necessary for the Church in order to move ahead towards a new era.

    [03] THE HEPATITIS B CARRIERS ARE MORE LIKELY TO DEVELOP LIVER CANCER

    The hepatitis B carriers are in increased danger to develop liver cancer. According to recent scientific research, 80% of the liver cancer cases in Greece are the result of hepatitis B, while is estimated that 1 in 2 hepatitis B patients is in danger to develop liver cancer in the near future.

    In the countries of western Europe and in the United States, 3-5 people out of 100 thousand develop liver cancer annually, while in Greece their number is 25 out of 100 thousand.

    Those figures were presented in a round table discussion held during the Conference of the Surgical Society of Northern Greece held in Thessaloniki. It was also stressed that the survival rate after a liver transplant has increased reaching 74% during the first year and 64% in the next 5 years.
