    Greek Press and Media Vice Minister mr Nikos Athanasakis rejected today the idea that the comments made by the President of the Hellenic Republic mr Constantinos Stephanopoulos on the eventuality of a compromise with FYROM on the name this country will be recognised under, constitute an intervention in the greek foreign policy.

    The government does not feel that it should comment on the statements made by the President of the Republic, said mr Athanasakis who reiterated that Greece enters the bilateral dialogue with FYROM with its known positions, stressing that this is what was said by mr Stephanopoulos.

    The Minister called the journalists to read again the text of the interview mr Stephanopoulos gave in New York.

    Mr. Papoulias had stated on September 24th, effectively challenging the European Commission, that it has an obligation to finish what it had started adding that Greece can not be left with the stigma of the violator.

    Mr. Pavlov and mr. Romeos stated that the completion of the Egnatia Road Network which will connect the Ionian Sea with the Grecoturkish border, will strengthen the communication between the Balkan and the European countries, a fact that interests both sides.

    [07] OVER 6% OF THE GREEK POPULATION HAS DEPRESSION SYMPTOMS

    Six out of 100 greeks present depression symptoms in some period of their lives while the numbers increase in the middle-aged and the elderly.

    Over 6% of the general population has symptoms of depression while the middle-aged and the elderly, especially women, suffer more often by depression compared to other age groups.

    According to figures provided by the World Health Organization, depression hits 1 out of 4 women while among men the percentage is lower. Symptoms of depression appear only in 1 out of 10 men.

    Based on scientific data, only 4 in 10 depression sufferers have visited a doctor while the rest avoid seeing one and stay without professional help.

    The contemporary views on depression are being discussed today in Thessaloniki where the scientific symposium of the Greek Psychiatry Society is being held with the participation of Psychiatry professors from the United States, Britain and Greece.

    Depression is characterized by anxiety, fatigue, change in eating habits, unstable psychological condition during the day and social isolation tendencies. Also, there are physical symptoms such as chest pains, difficulty in breathing, headaches and back pains which stem from psychological reasons.

    The medical science, according to its representatives, can fight depression with the new generations of anti-depressant medicines which offer greater safety limits compared to the earlier types of those drugs.
