  • [01] PM briefed by Bakoyannis on Cyprus trip

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis was briefed by Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis on Wednesday at the Maximos Mansion, on her recent visit to Cyprus and talks with the political leadership.

    Speaking to reporters afterwards, the foreign minister said that she informed the prime minister on her trip to Cyprus and the discussions she had with the political authorities. Bakoyannis stressed that an in-depth discussion was held on the preparations for the "important" European Union Summit which begins on Thursday in Brussels.

    Bakoyannis outlined that the Summit discussions will deal with economic issues and the problems faced by all the European societies, as well as European political issues following the Lisbon Treaty referendum in Ireland.

    [02] Aid to firestricken families

    World Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE) coordinator for Oceania and the Far East, George Angelopulos, presented checks worth a total of 30,000 Australian dollars to nine families that suffered massive damages from last summer's wildfires in Evia, including families who lost loved ones in the disastrous blazes, on a gesture of support by the SAE and the Greeks of Australia, during a special ceremony at the Evia prefectural headquarters on Tuesday evening.

    Angelopulos said that the Greeks of Australia had from the very outset mobilised to collect assistance for the fire-stricken people, and established the Sydney Overseas Greeks Emergency Family Fund, through which the money was collected, adding that the effort was still ongoing.

    Evia prefect Athanasios Bourandas praised the SAE initiative and the global organisation's role.

    Bourandas also announced that, in January 2009, the prefecture will host 20 students, both of Greek and non-Greek origing, who are studying Greek at the University of Perth.
