  • [01] PM congratulates Sarkozy on election victory

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Monday sent a message congratulating Nicolas Sarkozy on his victory in the second round of the French presidential election on Sunday.

    Karamanlis noted the warm relations between Greece and France, as well as the close ties between Greece's ruling New Democracy party and France's conservative UMP party, which is headed by Sarkozy, as well as his own warm relations with the new French president-elect.

    The Greek prime minister expressed his conviction that "these traditionally close ties of cooperation and friendship between our two countries will be strengthened further and we will have an opportunity to work together on a bilateral level but also within the European Union".

    Asked how Athens views Sarkozy's position on Turkey, meanwhile, government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos stressed that the government had repeatedly stated its position regarding Turkey's European prospects.
