    [01] ATHENS CONDEMS UNILATERAL TURKISH CLAIMS

    Greek government spokesman Nikos Athanasakis stated that the comments made by turkish Foreign Minister Denis Baikal are a repeat of the known turkish provocations. Mr.Athanasakis said that mr.Baikal's positions, according to which Ankara regards the Cyprus issue as its national issue and that is not going to abandon the turkish-cypriots under any pressure, are describing the policy of unilateral turkish claims against Greece.

    Greece, said mr.Athanasakis, referring to the Cyprus problem, believes that this problem is the key to the normalization and the improvement of the greek- turkish relations.

    He also reiterated the greek position, according to which the only dispute between the two countries is the continental shelf issue which Greece has proposed to be brought to the International Court of Justice but Turkey systematically rejects the idea for a number of years.

    Mr.Athanasakis added that for this reason Turkey should not blame Greece for its problems with the European Union and also should stop trying to export its internal problems.

    The greek government spokesman also referred to the statements made by turkish Prime Minister Tansu Ciller which he pointed out are different from those made by mr. Baikal.

    Mr.Athanasakis said that from all the statements made by mrs.Ciller he kept the part in which she admits that Turkey blocked the process promoted by the UN Secretary General for the solution of the Cyprus problem.

    The greek government spokesman also stressed that for Greece apart from the issue of the confidence- building-measures there is also the substance of the Cyprus problem and the need for a just and viable solution.

    [02] BOSNIAN SERB DELEGATION IS EXPECTED IN GREECE TOMORROW

    A bosnian serb delegation headed by vice-president Biliana Plavcic is expected to arrive in Greece tomorrow.

    According to a statement from the office of bosnian serb leader Radovan Karadjic, the delegation will hold talks with representatives of the greek government, the greek Church and the local administration aimed at the materialization of the bosnian serb draft plan for the "Support of the Serb Republic's housing fund aiming at the rebuilding of the Republic after the end of the war".

    The bosnian serbs are expecting considerable support and assistance from Greece for the rebuilding of the regions that were destroyed by the war.

    In the delegation will participate Raiko Kasagic who received the mandate to form a government, the vice- president's adviser Zdravko Miovic and Jiovo Basic head of the Directorate for the return of refugees.

    [03] THE GREEK CULTURE MINISTER IS ON A VISIT TO HUNGARY

    Greek Culture Minister Thanos Mikroutsikos is on a formal visit to Hungary since November 5th. Mr. Mikroutsikos has met with his hungarian counterpart and with Hungary's Education Minister while he is also scheduled to visit the greek village of Beloyiannis, the Modern Greek Literature Department in Eotvow Lorant University, the Christian Orthodox Cathedral in Budapest and the greek cultural center in the city of Kecskemet. The greek Culture Minister will return to Athens tomorrow.

    [04] BALKAN FORUM ON CINEMA WAS HELD IN THESSALONIKI TODAY

    Art unites the people and especially the Balkan peoples, was stressed today by the representatives of Greece, former Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey in the Balkan Forum on Cinema that was held today in the framework of the 36th Film Festival in Thessaloniki.

    Also, after a decision by the Federation of Directors in Audio-Visual Media, in which Greece is represented by the Association of greek film directors, Greece is responsible for the normalization of the relations of the Balkan Association of Film Directors.

    [05] A SOCCER MATCH IN THESSALONIKI INTERRUPTED BY HOOLIGANS

    Eight young hooligans were arrested after last night's violent incidents that took place during the soccer match held in Thessaloniki between the football clubs of PAOK, Thessaloniki and AEK, Athens. The eight will appear in front of a prosecutor in order to face charges.

    According to police, 26 police officers and 3 hooligans were injured in the incidents.

    Police regards PAOK fans as responsible for the incidents.The fans claim that became enraged because of their team's bad performance and the refferre had to interrupt the match so that the personal safety of the players was secured.

    PAOK in 1991 was punished with a two-year ban form the European soccer organizations for the incidents during a UEFA match against Lyonnes and now will be probably punished and have to play five home matches outside, while three points will be substracted form the club.

    If the judge finds the club quilty for incidents during a local derby against Iraklis last Sunday, the club will have to play ten home matches outside.The owner of the club announced his intention to sell his shares coverning 51% of the total number of shares of the company.

    PAOK is one of the most beloved clubs of Greece and has won two championships in 1976 and 1985.

    Last year they finished in the fourth position and won participation in the UEFA cup.

    The European Federation had in the meantime reduced the two-year ban of the club to one and they hoped that next year they will play in the European championships again but now as the manager of the club said they will have to try to save their presense in the first division.

    Before the match, PAOK was in the seventh position with 11 points, while the first Panathinaikos, Athens has 23.
