    Referring to the Greek-Turkish relations and the Cyprus issue, he said that the foreign policy followed by the government aims at strengthening the country's position in order for Turkey to be compelled to respect international law in the Aegean and to reach a viable solution for the Cyprus problem.

    On the Balkan countries, mr.Simitis said that they should not be outside the European developments.

    Finally, he said that Greece supports the struggle of the Cypriot people for freedom and vindication, adding that Greece will assist Cyprus in case of an aggressive attack by Turkey.

    The spokesman of the opposition party of New Democracy stated that on one hand the Prime Minister boasts about the supposed success of his government, while on the other he criticizes his government officials as being responsible for the inactivity in certain governmental sectors.
