    AMMAN (ANA - F. Karaviti) - ''Today's meeting of the 'Quartet' in Jodan signals the decisiveness and will of the international community to pass a message that we are in front of a historical opportunity and that we are dedicated to the promotion of the 'Road Map''', Greek Foreign Minister and EU Council of Foreign Ministers President George Papandreou said here on Sunday following the meeting of the ''Quartet'' on the Middle East issue (U.S., Russia, United Nations, European Union) in the context of the special meeting of the World Economic Forum which is taking place on the outskirts of Amman.

    Te Greek minister added that the ''Quartet'' will do everything possible in order to prevent any extremist action from undermining its effort.

    Papandreou added that during the meeting which Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis will have with U.S. President George W. in Washington on June 25, ''the joint determination of the international community will be confirmed and the intention and willingess will be strengthened for a solution to the problem. Many efforts in the past had failed. For this exact reason we have the 'Road Map''', he said.

    Earlier, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov, Papandreou and EUHigh Representative for EU Common Foreign and Security Policy Javier Solana held a joint press conference at which they reiterated their determination for the promotion of the ''Road Map''.
