  • [01] Deputy Minister Nakos attends NY events

    Greece's Deputy Interior, Public Administration and Decentralisation Minister Athanasios Nakos in New York on Saturday spoke at an event organised in Astoria by the Foundation of Greek Societies of New York, marking the anniversary of Greece's National Independence Day on March 25. Nakos conveyed "the personal interest and love" which Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis has for the Greek-American community.

    Nakos referred in particular to the efforts being made by the interior ministry for the development of Greek regions and called on the Greek-Americans to continue to help in every way possible their village, city and neighbourhood, which they left behind, thus giving an opportunity for the development of Greece.

    The Greek-American events in celebration of Greece's National Independence Day will culminate in New York on Sunday.

    On Sunday, at 8 p.m. (Greek time) the great paradae will start at Manhattan's 5th Avenue.

    The parade will be preceeded by a Te Deum at the Holy Trinity Church and a reception with greetings by official guests.

    Apart from Nakos, the Greek government will also be represented by Macedonia-Thrace Minister George Kalatzis.

    This year's parade is dedicated to the Greek immigrants and to youth.

    The events will also be attended by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, World Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE) President Andrew Athens, the president of "Marathon" bank, Paul Stathopoulos, and businessman John Ragos.

    [02] Education of immigrants in Greece

    Greece's National Education and Religious Affairs Minister Marietta Yiannakou in Washington on Saturday referred to the steps being taken to integrate the immigrants in Greece, which comprise 10 per cent of the population, and to the 130,000 foreign students who live in Greece. She was speaking to Greek correspondents in Washington prior to her return to Athens.

    Regarding the situation of religious freedoms and of human rights in Greece, she said that "the reality in the country is much better than that described in relevant State Department reports."

    She gave particular emphasis to the fact that "the Greek state cares about the education of the Muslims of Western Thrace."

    Yiannakou further described the education ministry's policy for the support of the education of Greeks abroad and of the promotion of the Greek language internationally.
