  • [01] FM Bakoyannis to depart on Balkans tour Thursday

  • [01] FM Bakoyannis to depart on Balkans tour Thursday

    The Greek foreign ministry on Wednesday announced that Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis will be embarking on a tour of Balkan countries on Thursday, which aims to highlight Greece's intense interest in events within the region as well as to get a rounded briefing on developments from all the sides concerned.

    Ministry spokesman George Koumoutsakos said Bakoyannis will be meeting with the key players behind developments in the region, stopping in Sarajevo and Belgrade on Thursday and then Pristina on Friday, where she will place a wreath on the grave of Ibrahim Rugova and have a series of meetings with the local government, the commander of UNMIK and the leaders of Kosovo's political parties.

    While in Kosovo, Bakoyannis will also pay a visit to the Greek forces stationed there before travelling to Vienna for talks with UN special envoy Marti Ahtisaari.

    Koumoutsakos also answered questions concerning a Greek school in Himare, Albania whose opening was attended by Deputy Foreign Minister Evripides Stylianidis. He clarified that the school was built with funds provided by a Greek non-governmental organisation and that it was designed to operate as a private school, while lessons would begin from the next school year.

    The school could mark a "new chapter" in further improving relations between Greece and Albania, in the framework of Albania's efforts to promote its European prospects, he added.
