    MOSCOW (ANA- D. Constantakopoulos) - The presidents of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and of Greece, Kostis Stephanopoulos, on Monday held talks covering the whole spectrum of bilateral relations and also international issues, in the presence of the two countries' foreign ministers, Igor Ivanov and George Papandreou.

    President Stephanopoulos began the same day a four-day official visit to Russia, the first ever by a Greek head of State.

    Speaking to reporters later, Putin expressed support for the solution of all problems in the Mediterranaean on the basis of international law, and welcomed Greece's proposal for the examination of all arising issues by international judicial bodies. He described as particularly significant Greece's views on Balkan issues and expressed support for a solution of the Cyprus issue on the basis of UN resolutions.

    The two sides examined the potential for further cooperation in the sectors of energy, military and technical cooperation, natural gas and the construction of electrical power plants in Greece.

    Among the speakers will be staff of Greek institutes for political, strategic and defence planning, while the opening address will be delivered by General Staff Deputy Chief Vice-Admiral Antonios Antoniadis.

    Seminars of this type first began in 1996 and take place every year - with the exception of 1999, the year of NATO operations in Kosovo.
