    [02] Greece - Turkey - Report denied - Aegean surveys

    13/06/2001 20:47:03

    ISTANBUL (ANA) -- Greeces embassy in Ankara on Wednesday flatly denied that an Italian-flagged research vessel was conducting ?geophysical? research in the Aegean on Athens behalf.

    In a statement sent to Turkeys semi-official Anadolu news agency, the Greek embassy stressed that the vessel in question, the ?Sentinel?, has been carrying out survey work in the Aegean since May 23 ?with the sole purpose of checking out the condition of existing telecom cable nodules and the possibility of laying additional fiber optic cables, from Attica towards Thessaloniki and in the Mirtoon Sea to Crete.?

    An embassy press spokesman Grigoris Arzoglou added in his written statement that the vessels surveys are being conducted under the supervision of Greeces state-run telecoms utility, OTE, and will be completed by June 21.

    ?It is clear, therefore, that the work carried out by the S/V Sentinel is totally unrelated to any geophysical studies in international waters, as mentioned in Anadolus dispatch,? spokesman Grigoris Arzoglou said, while adding that the Greek and Turkish foreign ministries have already exchanged ?necessary information? over the matter.

    The issue arose after Anadolu disseminated a news dispatch entitled ?Greece sends research vessel to the Aegean?.

    Technical buying for smaller capitalisation stocks helped the Athens Stock Exchange to a moderate recovery on Wednesday, with blue chip stocks flat reflecting lack of strong buying interest and subdued liquidity in the market.

    Banks and telecoms, the two sectors that accounted for the biggest part of the previous days' turnover, on Wednesday accounted for only 28.60 percent of the day's turnover. Textiles, Construction, Wholesale and Publishing led the advance.

    The general index ended 0.39 percent higher at 2,899.32 points, off teh day's highs of 2,910 points. Turnover was a low 154.10 million euros, or 52.51 billion drachmas.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks ended at 1,697.14 points, off 0.23 percent, the FTSE/ASE 40 index rose 1.75 percent to 328.09 points, and the FTSE/ASE SMALLCAP 80 index ended at 920.39 points, up 3.57 percent.

    The parallel market index for smaller capitalisation stocks ended at 273.86 points, up 3.10 percent.

    [06] Greece to present proposals for resolving the FYROM crisis to NATO

    13/06/2001 15:30:59

    Greece will participate with a military force if the international community decides to send a multinational mission to the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to impose the peace, government spokesman Telemachos Hytiris said on Wednesday.

    He added, however, that the Greek government favoured a solution of the crisis through dialogue rather than force.

    According to Hytiris, Greece is currently working on an integrated plan for resolving the FYROM crisis, which would be presented to its NATO partners by Prime Minister Costas Simitis.

    The prime minister, he added, would probably also present the Greek positions during a press conference to be held in the Brussels, possibly in the afternoon.

    The spokesman reiterated yet again that Greece absolutely opposed any prospect of a change in borders in the Balkan region.
