  • [01] FM addresses letter to EU Commission president for Greek seamen's release

    01/03/2004 23:28:52

    Foreign Minister Tassos Yiannitsis addressed a letter to European Commission President Romano Prodi on Monday, calling on him to approach the government of Pakistan for the release of five Greek seamen detained in Karachi.

    The letter comes after his intervention at the European Union's Council of Ministers on February 16 where the issue of the Greek seamen's detention was discussed at length, at the initiative of Athens.

    The EU troika and Commissioner Chris Patten have already made such an approach to the government of Karachi on the issue of the seamen of the ''Tasman Spirit'' which had created pollution following an accident outside the port of Karachi last summer.
