    [03] President Bush and Greek PM emphasise need for Europe-U.S. cooperation

    25/06/2003 23:56:00

    WASHINGTON (ANA - T. Ellis) - U.S. President George W. Bush and Greek Prime Minister and European Council President Costas Simitis, speaking at a joint press conference on Wednesday after the first U.S.-EU summit after the Iraq war, emphasised the need for cooperation between Europe and the U.S. to confront ''common threats.''

    Simitis characterised the transatlantic relation and interdependence between the U.S. and the EU as being of ''fundamental importance.''

    He also referred to constructive talks and placed emphasis on the fact that both the U.S. and Europe support freedom, democracy and human rights.

    President Bush noted that since World War Two and throughout the entire postwar period the U.S. had strongly supported European unity, adding that both sides of the Atlantic are being called on now to cooperate to confront the ''common threat'' which is international terrorism.

    He said that agreements were signed and joint statements were made on Wednesady concerning the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, as well as many trade issues such as negotiations on the deregulation of air transport, which are expected to lead to more and cheaper flights between the U.S. and Europe and within Europe.
