  • [01] DM says five countries involved in attack on Afghanistan

    07/10/2001 21:40:19

    Defence Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos, referring to the outbreak of war in Afghanistan, said in Ioannina, northern Greece, on Sunday night that "there is no war against civilisations and against peoples. The only thing there can be is a crackdown on terrorism itself."

    Tsohatzopoulos said five countries are participating in the attack: the U.S., Britain, Germany, Australia and Italy. He added that their aim is, on the one hand, to protect the people of Afghanistan with food and all the means they were derived of lately and, at the same time, to confront those who support terrorism and the terrorists themselves in the most effective way.

    He went on to say that this has to do with the implementation of international law and collective defence decided both by the UN Security Council and the UN general assembly as a legal means and a response to terrorism which created the multitude of innocent victims experienced in the U.S. several days ago.

    Tsohatzopoulos further said that what is important at present is for us to realise how spectacularly things have changed at a global level.

    He said that as a response to globalised terrorism a global alliance was formed in the international community on a steadfast conception against this form of terrorism.

    "But the Islamic world in its entirety is participating in this alliance against terrorism as well. Apart from the U.S., the EU, are Russia, China, India, Iran and Pakistan which are also participating. I would say they are mobilised in confronting terrorism. What should be clarified now is that terrorism has nothing to do with a confrontation, as some claim, between civilisations or peoples," he said.

    Speaking to a television station, Tsohatzopoulos announced that he is cancelling his agenda for Monday and will be returning to Athens on a night flight.

    [02] PM briefed by U.S. Vice President on attack on Afghanistan

    Prime Minister Costas Simitis was informed by U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday on the attack on Afghanistan before it was launched.

    According to reports, Cheney told Simitis that the response of the U.S. constitutes a move to eradicate terrorism and that an effort is being made not to harm civilians and innocent people. Cheney said the effort will continue at many levels.

    It was also revealed that Simitis will convene a special meeting of the Government Council of Foreign Affairs and Defence (KYSEA) at 1 p.m. on Monday.
