Talking to the press after his meetings at the White House with President Bill Clinton as well as Vice President Al Gore, Yilmaz said he found his counterparts "very well prepared". Added that it had been very comprehensive, useful and promising meeting, Yilmaz said, "I had the most fruitful and comprehensive discussion on issues of mutual interest. They range from bilateral relations to all the relevant international developments."

    During the White House visit Turkish delegation also signed a $2.5 billion agreement for the purchase of 49 Boeing-737 model civilian passanger planes as well. Yilmaz and the Turkish delegation accompanying him will return home today. /All papers/

    [02] 5 PKK TERRORISTS KILLED ON SYRIA BORDER

    Turkish security forces on Sunday killed five PKK terrorists at Turkey's southern border with Syria, the Anatolia news agency reported. It said the terrorists died in a clash after being spotted by an infrared camera while crossing a minefield at the border near Turkey's Ceylanpinar district.

    [03] FRESH TURCO-GREEK CRISIS

    An administrative attache from the Greek Chief Consulate in Atens was caught last week as he was trying to find out secret information about Turkish military facilities in the southeastern parts of the country. The attache has been expelled from Turkey.

    Greek Foreign Minister Theodoros Pangalos rejected the accusations directed against the Greek official and threatened with retaliation. He said that Turkish moves could result in a deterioration in bilteral relations between the two neighbour countries. /Hurriyet/

    [04] TURKEY WILL TRAIN SLOVAK SOLDIERS

    Turkish military cooperation with Eastern European countries intensifies. Within this framework, Turkey and Slovakia have signed an agreement for cooperating in military training. The agreement signed on October 27, in the Slovak capital of Bratislava was published in the Official Gazette last week. /Hurriyet/

    [05] TURKEY EMERGES AS TOURISM GIANT

    A research of the Turkish Union of Travel Agencies revealed that Turkey has marked a notable progress in tourism during the last 25 years. Over this 25-year period, Turkey's tourism revenue has increased 25 times, and the number of foreign tourists coming to Turkey has surged eightfold. This growth rate is much higher than the tourism growth rate in the other Mediterranean countries. /Hurriyet/
