    [02] Greek FM-Belgrade-Talks-Yugoslav President

    07/10/2000 19:21:58

    BELGRADE (ANA - M. Mouratidis) - Greece's Foreign Minister George Papandreou held talks here on Saturday with Yugoslavia's new president Vojislav Kostunica at the Presidential Mansion.

    Papandreou underlined to reporters at the end of his talks with Kostunica that the message the European Union was conveying was that it wishes to see Yugoslavia in the European family.

    The Greek foreign minister said his meeting with Kostunica was very moving in that the democratic developments in Yugoslavia are of significance to all the countries of the region.

    Papandreou expressed certainty that Yugoslavia "will find its path in this transitional period without external pressures" and will proceed in the settlement of its relations with the countries of the region and with the international community.

    "The entire international community was waiting for the decisions of the Yugoslav people and to see a democratic Yugoslavia," he said.

    The Greek minister said that following these developments, the procedure will start for the lifting of sanctions against Yugoslavia.

    He noted that the European Union's General Affairs Council will meet in Luxembourg on Monday to discuss the sanctions issue and that he believed that positive decisions will be reached concerning the matter.

    Papandreou is the first EU foreign minister to visit Yugoslavia following Kostunica's presidential victory.

    Papandreou arrived in Belgrade early Saturday afternoon at the invitation of the new president.

    Papandreou said earlier in arrival statements at the airport that he was visiting the Yugoslav capital at a historic moment, not just for Yugoslavia but also for the whole region. He recalled that during his recent visit to Belgrade prior to the September 24 presidential elections, he conveyed to the Serbian people the European Union's message for Yugoslavia's accession into the European family.

    "The Serbian people have spoken and Vojislav Kostunica is today the president. For this reason, the European Union must respond to this message and help Yugoslavia approach Europe as soon as possible," Papandreou said in his arrival statements.

    Papandreou said he would discuss with Kostunica issues including Greek-Yugoslav relations, cooperation between Yugoslavia and the European Union and that country's accession to the European family.

    Speaking on Serbian state television on Friday night, Kostunica stressed the importance of the meeting he would have the following day with Papandreou "as Greece all these years has shown great understanding regarding the situation in Yugoslavia."
