    [03] Powell cites Athens' support following terrorist strikes

    23/09/2001 17:04:49

    WASHINGTON (ANA) -- US Secretary of State Colin Powell on Friday praised Athens for its support and offer of assistance in the aftermath of the shocking Sept. 11 ?air terror attacks? in New York and Washington.

    Amid the rising crescendo of international diplomatic and military activity for an expected US-led crusade against terrorism, Powell swore-in Washingtons new ambassador to Athens, Thomas Miller -- a veteran of Greek-American relations with a previous high-ranking stint at the US embassy in Athens.

    In addressing Greeces ambassador to the United States, Alexandros Filon, Powell thanked Athens for the condolences sent to the US administration and the offers of aid by the Greek people. He also cited a memorial service at the US embassy in Athens last week organised by local politicians, while expressing his concern for the Greek citizens and Greek-Americans still missing in the World Trade Center rubble.

    ?As I have said on many occasions, this wasnt just an attack against the United States, but against the entire civilised world,? Powell stressed.

    On his part, Miller expressed his fondness for Greece, saying his new post fulfils a career goal.

    In terms of Greek-American relations, the new US ambassador to Athens said they are based on very sturdy foundations, despite occasional differences that are ?natural and expected? in a mature and close-knit bilateral cooperation.


    In focusing on Greeces role in the region and bilateral cooperation, the US Secretary of State reiterated that the only European Union and NATO member-state in the Balkans ?has played a significant role? in the effort against international terrorism.

    Regarding Greek-Turkish relations, Powell praised a recent rapprochement between Athens and Ankara, saying Washington is encouraged by continued progress in the area by two of its closest allies.

    Moreover, he reiterated that Washington remains devoted to a resolution of the long-standing Cyprus problem by actively supporting efforts of the UN general secretary towards this direction, and also fully supports a resumption of UN-brokered proximity talks between the two sides on the divided island republic.
