  • [01] President Stephanopoulos begins three-day official visit to Serbia-Montenegro

    14/10/2003 23:04:11

    BELGRADE (ANA/N. Megadoukas) - President of the Republic Kostis Stephanopoulos began a three-day official visit to Serbia-Montenegro on Tuesday night, aimed at further strengthening economic cooperation between the two countries, with talks with President Svedozar Marovic.

    ''I am among friends. And this friendship of ours has been proved in practice. And we shall do this in the future as well with words and with deeds,'' President Stephanopoulos said after his talks with President Marovic.

    President Stephanopoulos reiterated Greek support for the effort of Serbia-Montenegro to join Euroatlantic institutions, the NATO alliance and the European Union.

    [02] PM addresses ruling PASOK parliamentary group, denies reshuffle rumour

    14/10/2003 22:51:59

    Prime Minister Costas Simitis on Tuesday called for the ''dynamic participation'' by all of ruling PASOKs deputies in order for the party to win next year's general elections.

    In addressing a meeting of PASOKs parliamentary group, Simitis also denied rumours of a government reshuffle, before criticising those who ''cultivate attacks against MPs in order to mar their personal dignity''.

    He also called on PASOKs deputies to disregard such rumours, and instead to focus on the partys strategy for reducing unemployment, for convergence with the EU, and for national issues.

    The premier further called on his deputies to showcase the government's accomplishments of recent years and its commitments for the next four-year term to voters, while at the same time accusing main opposition New Democracy of engaging in a ''sterile opposition'' that aims only at assuming power. Among others, he cited ND leader Costas Karamanlis' stance on Greek-Turkish affairs and the main opposition party's stance on the ''re-establishment'' of the state.

    ND's sole goal is to gain power in favour of a ''closed group and circle of party supporters'', Simitis said.

    Greek exports rose by 5.1 percent in the first six months of 2003 to 5.873 billion euros despite a strong rise in the euro currency exchange rate, reflecting strong exports to developed countries and in particular EU member-states and improved export performance of manufactured products, official figures said on Tuesday.
