  • [01] Multilateral cooperation the only way to a better world, FM Molyviatis tells UN General Assembly

    New York (P. Panagiotou/ANA) -- Multilateral cooperation was the only path for a better world, Greece's foreign minister Petros Molyviatis said late Monday (Greek time), addressing the 60th UN General Assembly in New York.

    "It is only a matter of time before poverty, hunger and the catastrophic repercussions of epidemics lead to international clashes or civil conflicts," the minister warned, noting that "the international multi-lateral system must be strengthened and reinforced".

    Greece, he said, "fully participates in the actions of the European Union and the various international organisations contributing to the economic development of all the areas of the world, and which aim at reducing the existing inequalities".

    Before touching on a wide range of subjects that included terrorism, Kosovo, Cyprus, Turkey's European prospect, and the Middle East peace effort, Molyviatis expressed appreciation to UN secretary general Kofi Annan for his constant efforts to advance peace and security, and to safeguard the UN's moral prestige and outstanding role.

    On terrorism, Molyviatis said it had become the most significant challenge of the times, creating an atmosphere of collective fear and intolerance and an endless cycle of violence.

    Regarding Kosovo, he said that the wounds created by the oppression of the past and the ethnic vioence had not yet healed, and a settlement based on international legality was necessary.

    Turning to the 31-year-old Cyprus problem, Molyviatis stressed that Greece remained firmly devoted to achieving a just and viable solution for reunification of the island, following negotiations, on the basis of the Annan plan, the relevant UN Security Council resolutions, and in accordance with the principles governing the European Union and the acquis communautaire, he said.

    With respect to Turkey, the neighbouring country's European prospect would broaden and deepen the breadth of Greek-Turkish relations, the foreign minister continued.

    On the Middle East, Molyviatis said that the common goal remained implementation of a two-states solution -- Israel and Palestine -- coexisting in peace and security.

    [02] Italy's minister for Italians Abroad Tremaglia arrives on two-day visit

    Italy's minister for Italians Abroad Mirko Tremaglia arrived in Athens on Tuesday for a two-day visit, during which he will hold talks with Greece's deputy foreign minister Panagiotis Skandalakis and meet with representatives of the major Italian companies active in Greece, and also inaugurate the Greek chapter of the Confederation of Italian Entrepreneurs Worldwide (CIIM).

    Tremaglia was due to meet with deputy foreign minister Skandalakis later on Tuesday.

    The Italian minister will be accompanied on his Athens activities by Italian ambassador to Greece Gian Paolo Cavarai, Italian Consul in Athens Fabrizio Lobasso, and Councillor of the General Council of Italians Abroad (CGIE) Massimo Romagnoli.

    Tremaglia will attend a luncheon hosted by ambassador Cavarai on Tuesday, during which he will met with representatives of the major Italian companies active in Greece.

    Later on Tuesday, the minister will inaugurate the Greek chapter of the CIIM, and meet with representatives of the Italian community in Greece at the premises of the Italian Archaeological School in Athens.

    On Wesnesday, Tremaglia will visit the Italian Consulate in Athens, where he will meet with members of the local Committee of Italian Residents Abroad (COM.IT.ES), followed by a visit to the Italian State School.

    Meanwhile, in a statement to the ANA, Ambassador Cavarai expressed satisfaction with the enthusiasm with which the Greek public greeted the spectacular appearance of the Italian Air Force's acrobatic team "Frecce Tricolori" (tricolor arrows) at Greece's first air show, Archangelos 2005, at Tanagra over the weekend. He also commended the expertise of the Italian air force pilots manning the planes.

    Cavarai, who attended the air show with Italian Air Force chief of staff Lt.-Gen. Leonardo Tricarico, noted the displays put on by fourth-generation aircfaft, including the Eurofighter, which is the result of collaboration between the aerospace industries of Britain, Spain, Italy and Germany.

    Immediately following the flight of a prototype of the advanced Italian Aermacchi training craft M346, the Frecce Tricolori, with a 10-aircraft formation, painted the sky in the three clolours of the Italian flag, from which the acrobatic team derives its name (tricolor arrows).

    The air show, organised by the Hellenic Air Force to honour its patron saint, the Archangel Michael, was attended by more than 240,000 Greek and foreign spectators, including Greece's President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias.

    A total of 20 military air forces and 12 aerospace companies participated in the event.
