    [02] Greek side overcomes Kazakhstan for 2-1 win in World Cup qualifier

    Greece defeated a spirited Kazakhstan side 2-1 on Wednesday afternoon during a group 2 World Cup qualifying match in Almaty, keeping alive its hope for qualifying for next years world cup tournament in Germany. Kazakhstan went ahead in the second half with Zhumaskaliyev in the 58th minute only to be equalised by Boltons Stelios Giannakopoulos in the 78th minute, with AEK Athens Nikos Lymberopoulos giving the Greek side the three points with a shot in the 90th minute.

    [03] Dep. FM Valinakis discusses EU issues with Spanish, Portuguese counterparts

    Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis Valinakis on Wednesday met with his counterparts from Spain and Portugal, Alberto Navarro and Fernando Neves, respectively, for talks mostly focusing on European Union issues. "We want the European Union to continue financing the efforts of less affluent countries, so they can reach a level of convergence," Valinakis later told reporters. Moreover, the deputy FM said the financial burden from the recent EU expansion should be fairly divided between the Union's member-states, "so we don't reach the point where the poorer countries are funding the poorest".

    All three deputy foreign ministers also focused on upcoming efforts by the so-called "group of 17" -- an initiative promoted by Spain, Portugal and Greece -- to support the Commission's proposals vis-a-vis the all-important 2007-2013 Community budget.

    [04] Two arrested in Thessaloniki carrying 100 kilos of hashish

    Two men were arrested in northern Greece on Wednesday after they were caught carrying roughtly 100 kilos of hashish concealed in the car they were driving. The arrest was made by police in Veria, who were acting on a tip-off that a drug-trafficking ring was bringing large quantities of illegal drugs into Greece, selling them mainly in the prefectures of Larissa and Imathia.

    The two men, a 26-year-old Albanian national and a 30-year-old Greek, were caught in the early hours of the morning after a stakeout at a junction of the Egnatia Highway with the Siatista-Kastoria national road.

    The car contained 95,492 kilos of hashish divided up into 105 packages, and was apparently destined for Larissa. The two men were led before a public prosecutor and the investigation to uncover and arrest the other members of the gang is continuing.
