  • [01] CONFERENCE OF THE CRETANS IN GREECE AND ABROAD The closer ties between the Cretans around the world and the improvement of their ability to help effectively their place of origin, are among the goals of the Conference of the Cretans living abroad, stressed Conference Organizing Committee President Mr . Prasianakis during a press conference yesterday.

    Cretan Brotherhood of Macedonia President and Organizing Committee General Secretary Nikos Papadakis stated that the conference is an important moment in the Cretan dialogue. It is the first time the Cretans living abroad and the local residents meet to discuss the development of Crete as well as, issues of education, history, culture, and social problems.

    Mr. Papadakis stated that over 150 organizations of Cretans from Greece and abroad will be represented in the conference. He also stressed the participation of the young Cretans and the live broadcast of the conference by MPA (www.mpa.gr) offering the op portunity to the Cretans anywhere in the world to watch the proceedings.

    Orthodox Academy of Crete General Director Mr. Papaderos stressed that the academy will work for the holy cause of the conference.

    Conference Treasurer Yiannis Papadakis referred to the support offered to the conference by the Greek government, local administration and private companies.

    The conference will take place at the Orthodox Academy of Crete in Kolibari, Chania on August 20-24 and it will be formally opened by Minister of Finance Nikos Christodoulakis.

  • [02] STATEMENT BY THE MUNICIPALITY OF FLORINA ON THE UTRINSKI VESNIK REPORT The FYROM newspaper Utrinski Vesnik report according to which, the main square of the city of Florina, northwestern Greece, is likely to be used for the gathering of those participating in the third meeting of descendants of political refugees from FYROM

    caused the reaction of the Municipality of Florina.

    In a statement issued by the Municipality it is mentioned that it is unaware of the issue and no request was ever made for the city's main square to be used to hold any event. Therefore, the Municipality of Florina regards the issue as non existent and t he newspaper report as groundless and untrue.

  • [03] US-BRITAIN MORE LIKELY TERRORIST TARGETS THAN GREECE At a time when the international press is attacking Greece questioning the safety of the 2004 Olympic Games, a report by the British Research Center on International Markets puts Greece among the countries that are less likely to suffer a terrorist hit.

    According to the conclusions of the report, Greece is less likely to become a terrorist target than the United States or Britain. The United States is at the fourth place on the list of countries with a high risk of a terrorist attack, while Britain is at the tenth place.

    The 2003-2004 International Terrorism List includes 186 countries at risk of a terrorist hit in the next 12 months and serves as a "guide" for companies and investors around the world.

    Colombia, Israel and Pakistan are at the top of the list, while the high place of Britain is attributed to the close cooperation between London and Washington. The report stresses that if the Twin Towers were a symbolic target in the United States, a sim ilar target in Britain is its Parliament.

  • [04] A GERMAN TOURIST DROWNED WHILE SWIMMING IN CHALKIDIKI A 53yearold tourist drowned yesterday afternoon while swimming in the region of Polichrono in Chalkidiki, northern Greece.
