  • [01] PM tours Great Wall, Forbidden City

    Beijing (ANA-MPA/A. Panagopoulos) -- Greece's Prime minister Costas Karamanlis, currently on a three-day official visit to China, on Friday toured the Great Wall of China, accompanied by his wife Natassa.

    Karamanlis was given a tour of the historical monument, and wrote in the Visitors' Book: It is moving for me to return, after 27 years, to one of the most impressive monuments built by man".

    The Greek premier later met with the president of the COSCO shipping company and the presidents of two ports, in the context of the Joint Declaration for establishing a Comprehensive Strategic Cooperation between the two countries, which he signed in Beijing on Thursday with Chinese premier Wen Jiabao.

    One of the targets of reinforced Greek-Chinese relations is to render the major Greek ports into transit centres for Chinese products destined for the Balkans and Europe.

    Karamanlis also visited the Forbidden City, before being received by Chinese President Hu Jintao. He was also scheduled to meet with the chairman of the Chinese parliamentary committees.
