    [02] GREECE ENGAGED IN A JUST, ANTI-FASCIST AND LIBERATION FIGHT THAT HAD AN IMPACT ON THE WHOLE OF EUROPE

    The fact that Greece engaged in a just, anti-fascist and liberation fight which had an impact not only on the Balkans but on the whole of Europe as well, was stressed in all the speeches made in an event organized in Tirana by the Greek-Albanian Friendship Association in cooperation with the Association of Albanian Army Historians on the occasion of the 55th anniversary of the greek-italian war in 1940.

    Albanian professor Gjergi Titani stressed in his speech that none believed a small country like Greece could win a powerful country like Italy but the miracle happened thanks to the national unity, the patriotism and the heroism of the greek people and the greek army.

    Albanian historians Ziza Xholi, Shahin Leka, Virgjil Janku and Pipi Mitrojorgji stressed that during the war was displayed once again the friendship that exists between the greek and the albanian people.

    Greek Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou in his message for tomorrow's "Ohi" ("No") Day anniversary of Greece's refusal to surrender to the italian forces during World War II stressed that the greek heroic national resistance, the continuous struggle for freedom, national independence and democracy constitute principles still upheld by the greek people.

    Mr.Papandreou also mentions in his message that the national unity is necessary at today's juncture for the safeguarding of Greece's national interests adding that in a period of serious problems in the region, Greece remains firm in its positions.

    The greek Prime Minister continues in his message that 50 years after the end of World War II Greece again says "No" this time to the new expressions of fascism and racism which are creeping phenomena in today's societies.

    [04] THE DIVISION OF CYPRUS IS UNACCEPTABLE, STATED THE BRITISH FOREIGN MINISTER

    British Foreign Minister Malcolm Rifkind characterized as unacceptable the continuous division of Cyprus and reiterated his country's support to the efforts undertaken by the UN Secretary General for the solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Referring to the living conditions of those trapped in the turkish occupied northern Cyprus he said that personal tragedies are unavoidable in such situations adding that this must give a boost to the efforts for the reunification of Cyprus.

    [05] THERE ARE NO NAMES FOR SKOPJE ON THE NEGOTIATING TABLE, STATED THE GREEK FOREIGN MINISTER

    Greek Foreign Minister Karolos Papoulias stated after his arrival in the north-western city of Ioannina that there are no proposed names for Skopje on the negotiating table and that "we are still in exploratory stages".

    The Foreign Minister also stated that the negotiations with the skopjans have entered the second phase, the phase of the name and already mr.Vance has made an introspection of the skopjan and the greek side on which the Prime Minister has been informed.

    Mr.Papoulias stated "I think that we are entering a phase which will be a difficult and hard negotiation, but we believe that in the end will be successful."
