    [03] Large-scale police operation uncovers ''Nov. 17'' hideout in Athens

    03/07/2002 23:31:05

    Police launched a large-scale operation on Wednesday, locating a ''November 17'' terrorist organisation hideout in the Athens Patisia neighborhood, discovering weapons, rockets of all types, printed material and a computer.

    Among the arms were military rockets of several types and firearms, while tests will be conducted on the computer to assess whether it was the one used to write the shadowy murderous terrorist organization's latest proclamations.

    Initially, police evacuated the apartment complex and then entered the basement apartment, where the weaponry was discovered, with police bomb disposal experts entering first in the event that the apartment was booby-trapped.

    [04] Greek premier and Ukrainian president discuss EU-Ukraine ties

    03/07/2002 23:29:53

    KIEV (ANA - H. Poulidou) Relations between the countries of Eastern Europe and the European Union needed to be stable, Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis stressed here on Wednesday, the second day of his official visit to the Ukraine.

    Speaking after a meeting with Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma, Simitis said that the Greek government was in favour of policies that encouraged the participation of these countries in European processes, while Athens wanted all European countries to join the EU in the long term, for both economic and security reasons.

    The Greek premier, who heads an informal 'eurozone' presidency since non-eurozone-member Denmark took over the EU presidency on July 1, stressed that this was far from being an immediate prospect, however.
