  • [01] Onassis Cultural Foundation-NY-Inauguration

    25/10/2000 14:07:58

    The Onassis Public Benefit Foundation inaugurated a daughter foundation Tuesday in New York that will develop multi-facted educational and cultural activity aiming at the projection of Hellenic culture throughout the United States and chiefly in the greater New York area.

    The inauguration of the NY-based Onassis Cultural Foundation, housed in the Olympic Tower on Fifth Avenue, was attended by a number of personalities from the political and academic communities of both Greece and the US.

    Onassis Public Benefit Foundation chairman Stelios Papadimitriou, who will also serve as chairman of the Culture Foundation, officiated over the inauguration ceremony together with Greece's parliament president Apostolos Kaklamanis, while Greek-American Senator Paul Sarbanis and a representative for the mayor of New York addressed short greetings.

    [02] FM-Rapprochement with Turkey

    25/10/2000 13:27:35

    The policy of rapprochement with Turkey must not be upset due to the problems that arose recently and led to Greece's withdrawal from the NATO exercise "Destined Glory" in the neighbouring country, Greek foreign minister George Papandreou said late Tuesday night in San Francisco, during a US visit.

    The foreign minister said he considered it "natural" that the policy could meet "difficulties and stumbling blocks", without this meaning, however, that it should be abandoned, since "it expresses a strong trend in the Greek and Turkish society".

    "We have a democratic obligation to listen to the voice of our peoples and not downgrade their desire for rapprochement," he said.

    [03] NATO document-Aegean islands-Turkish claims disproved

    25/10/2000 11:30:27

    NATO's Office of the Legal Adviser said in a document released Wednesday that "there is no legal obstacle to the overflights" by military aircraft over the islands in the eastern Aegean.

    The document, which is dated October 8, 2000 and appears in Wednesday's issue of TA NEA newspaper, disproves Turkish claims that the Greek islands of Limnos and Ikaria in the eastern Aegean are demilitarised zones.

    Greek forces pulled out of the NATO exercise "Destined Glory" in Turkey on the weekend after Turkey blocked Greek jets from participating in the exercise Saturday and warned of "undesired results" if Greece persisted in flying over the islands of Limnos and Ikaria, which Ankara claims are "demilitarized zones" under past agreements, although the islands were included in exercise flight plans agreed on by the alliance before the manoeuvres.

    [04] Soccer-Champions League-Panathinaikos-Defeat

    24/10/2000 23:54:45

    La Corunha of Spain beat Panathinaikos 1-0 in a soccer Champions League group five match played at Riazor stadium on Tuesday night. The winning goal was scored by Piadiani in the 82nd minute.
