    Greek ambassador to Bonn mr.Bourloyiannis- Tsagaridis conveyed a "note verbale" (verbal note) to german Undersecretary of Foreign Affairs Peter Hartman on the issue of the occupation loan the Bank of Greece was forced to extend to the Nazi occupation forces during the Second World War and also on the war reparations Greece is claiming from Germany.

    The meeting lasted half an hour and the content or the outcome of the talks was not made known. The german Foreign Ministry is expected to issue a statement this evening.

    Greece is decided to proceed to all legitimate actions for the greek petition so that the money german occupation forces took during the second world war, said today the Greek press and Media Minister mr Tilemahos Hitiris.

    German foreign ministry in a statement made in Bonn, stressed that the grecogerman relations should be orientated to the future and not to the past.

    Up-to-now no official reaction was recorded in Greece where the policy for the return of the occupation laon and the war retrievals seems to have the support of all parties.

    [02] SERIOUS INCIDENTS DURING STUDENTS PROTEST MARCH IN ATHENS

    Serious incidents took place once again in the centre of Athens during a protest march of the students asking for an increase in the moeny spent for the high education.

    Gangs of young people having their faces covered created serious problems while they set fire on a van owned by a private tv station.

    No arrests were announced but police express their concern for the eventuality such events be repeated during the march for the the 22nd anniversary of the occupation by students of the poytechnic school of Athens which led to the overthrow of the military dictatorship in Greece some months later.

    [03] DEADLINE ON TIMETABLE FOR THE CASE OF THE MISSING IN CYPRUS ENDS

    The deadline set by the United Nations on the timetable concerning the presentation of the files of the individuals missing since the turkish invasion in Cyprus ends tomorrow.

    The files of those individuals had to be presented to the international organisation's exploratory committee and according to UN Secretary General Dr Boutros Boutros Ghali there will be no deadline extension.

    The presentation of the files to the UN exploratory committee was the sole subject of discussion in the meeting that was held in the office of the Prosecutor General in Nicosia.

    The meeting was necessary after the latest ultimatum sent to the greek-cypriot side by mr. Ghali calling for the speeding up of the procedure in order to start the investigations on the fate of the missing.

    Meanwhile, greek member of the European Parliament with PASOK mr Yiannos Kranidiotis tabled a resolution yesterday during a plenary session of the European Parliament demanding the immediate and unconditional release of a greek-cypriot national guardsman who has been arrested by the turkish occupation forces in early November. Mr. Kranidiotis tabled the resolution on behalf of the European Socialist party group.

    [04] DENKTASH IS NOT THE LEADER OF TURKISH-CYPRIOTS, SY BRITISH LABOURS

    British Labour party Parliament member Alan Mill stated that his party does not consider mr Rauf Denktash as a leader of the turkish-cypriots, because he was not legally elected, but sees him as representative of the turkish side in the occupied Cyprus.

    In statements made after his meeting with acting President of the Cypriot Republic and Parliament Speaker mr. Alexis Galanos, mr. Mill said that the Labour party recognizes only the legally elected cypriot government and refuses to have any ties with the turkish-cypriot "pseudo-state" which characterized as illegal and running counter to international legality.

    Called to comment on the fact that 12 years have already passed since the unilateral declaration of the "pseudo-state", mr.Mill said that the celebrations of such an anniversary in the turkish occupied part of Cyprus is "a slap in the face of democracy" while he also added that the only thing that must be remembered is that the illegal occupation of northern Cyprus continues for 21 years.

    Mr. Mill stressed that the British Labour party will work with the Cypriot government in all the international organizations for Cyprus' reunification and for achieving its immediate and full membership in the European Union. He also critisized strongly both the US and the british governments accusing them of "deliberately pushing aside the Cyprus problem".

    [05] CHAIR OF MODERN GREEK LANGUAGE ESTABLISHED IN BELGRADE UNIVERSITY

    Chair of Modern Greek Language and Literature has been established in Belgrade University School of Literature and 50 students are attending the classes offered.

    The Serb Academy Balkan Institute has good scientific relations with Thessaloniki's Institute for Balkan Studies and the establishment of the Chair of Modern greek language in Belgrade University is the result of their cooperation.

    Chair of Serb Language is expected to be established in the future in Athens University.

    [06] GREEK MINISTER OF TOURISM TO CNN MAKES AN OPEN INVITATION
