    Greece celebrated the 180th anniversary of the 1821 revolution against Ottoman rule on Sunday with a military parade held in Athens in the presence of President Kostis Stephanopoulos, Prime Minister Costas Simitis, Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos, party leaders, deputies, representatives of the diplomatic corps and the leadership of the armed forces.

    In a statement after the parade, President Stephanopoulos said, among others, "March 25 expresses the acceptance of sacrifies for the sake of freedom and the motherland. I believe we should acquaint ourselves with this position of the spirit and of life because the freedom of the motherland always remains a paramount value and its defence is a great commitment for us."

    Prime Minister Simitis said "today's parade showed, as in past years, that the Greek armed forces are very well equipped, they have a high morale and can defend national causes and rights effectively."

    National Defence Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos and his Bulgarian counterpart agreed on Saturday to enlarging a meeting of defence ministers from countries bordering with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) in Skopje, FYROM, on April 5 with the participation of countries participating in the multinational brigade for southeastern Europe.

    The agreement was reached during talks between the two ministers in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, while reports said Tsohatzopoulos will be discussing the proposal with his Albanian counterpart in a meeting they will be having over the next 10 days.

    "All should realise that all of us together have the obligation and right to build a peaceful southeastern Europe based on the principles of democracy and freedom and which will guarantee prosperity, progress and liberties for its peoples," he said.

    Tsohatzopoulos stressed the need for a collective expression of political support for the government of FYROM and called on the local government to show sensitivity towards problems causing reactions by the Albanian minority.

    He reiterated that it is inconceivable for one to think that whatever minority in the Balkans can start an effort aimed at changing borders in the name of human rights.
