  • [07] Greek - Turkish Foreign Ministers By Myria Antoniadou

    Ankara, Jan 19 (CNA) -- Greek and Turkish Foreign Ministers George Papandreou and Ismail Cem have pledged to work cautiously together and build on solid ground for the benefit of their people.

    The two Ministers appeared optimistic in their statements to the press, shortly after Papandreou's arrival in Turkey (the first visit by a Greek FM since 1962) and said they draw strength from their people, who have shown their respective leaderships that they are closer than politicians think.
