    Prince Charles arrived at Limnos airport from Switzerland on Monday, accompanied by Camilla Parker and bodyguards. He was met at the airport by members of the British diplomatic mission in Athens and local police who had been notified of his arrival on the island.

    Immediately after, Prince Charles and his entourage boarded a blue Mercedes car and headed for the port of Moudros from where a rubber dinghy ferried them to a yacht waiting for them in the Gulf of Moudros. According to reports, Prince Charles will sail round Limnos, while visits to other Greek islands in the northern Aegean cannot be ruled out.

    ISTANBUL (ANA - A. Kourkoulas) - Greek film director Theodoros Angelopoulos was on Monday honoured by the International Cinema Festival in Istanbul during an official ceremony at a hotel in the city's centre.

    "Praise to love and poetry are what are left for me to do as a film director," he told a press conference, adding that "my next film will be about the feelings of a 14-year-old boy who falls in love for the first time and thinks that this love will last forever."

    Angelopoulos said he was moved by the reception of his films by the Turkish public and said he would be willing to make a film with Turkish colleagues.

    The Greek government on Monday rejected accusations levelled against Greece for its position against terrorism, which were contained in the US State Department's annual report publicised the same day.

    "Greece is standing in the front line in combatting terrorism and is participating actively in all international efforts, on an equal basis, with the criterion of domestic law and order and respect for democratic institutions and rights," he said.
