  • [01] Optimistic dynamic in Cyprus issue for first time, FM says during Nicosia visit

    05/09/2001 12:46:27

    NICOSIA (ANA - G. Leonidas) --

    An optimistic dynamic has been created in the Cyprus issue for the first time, Greek foreign minister George Papandreou said late Tuesday in Nicosia.

    "For the first time, and given the prospect of Cyprus' accession to the European Union, a new optimistic dynamic has been created for the first time on the Cyprus issue," Papandreou told a special late-night programme on state television RIK titled "The hour of truth for Cyprus' future".

    Papandreou, who Wednesday concludes a two-day visit to Cyprus for talks with the government and political party leaders, explained that in all his contacts with Turkish political officials he notes that Cyprus must be rendered "an example of cooperation and friendship" because "it is unacceptable that Athens and Ankara proceed to any cooperations while a part of Cyprus remains under (Turkish) occupation".

    "Turkey is fully aware that its way to Europe passes through Cyprus," the Greek FM added.

    [02] More than 350 illegal immigrants abandoned off Evia, five dead

    05/09/2001 10:21:25

    The bodies of five illegal immigrants among a group of more than 350 Kurds and Afghanis disembarked by immigrant-smugglers were discovered on the coast of Evia early Wednesday, the Greek Coast Guard said.

    A Coast Guard official told ANA that the immigrants were disembarked off Mantoudi during the night by an unidentified ship, and Coast Guard patrol boats were combing the sea area of Evia to ascertain whether the vessel was still inside Greek territorial waters.

    According to early reports, the immigrants were disembarked off the coast of Mantoudi and had to swim to shore. The five dead were believed to have drowned.
