  • [01] PM meets Obama, Merkel and Gul on NATO sidelines

    LISBON (ANA-MPA/V.Mourtis) - Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou had brief meetings here on Friday, on the sidelines of a NATO Summit, with U.S. President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Turkish President Abdullah Gul.

    According to reliable sources, the discussion with Gul was held during the debate on the issue of NATO relations with the European Union and when the Turkish leader reiterated his country's position on the Cyprus Republic's participation in international organisations and specifically in NATO's plans.

    The same sources said the Greek premier responded that the Alliance was not the right forum for resolving the protracted Cyprus problem and asked all those able to help to assist in finding a a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem, in the framework of UN resolutions and the acquis communautaire.

    Concerning his meeting with Merkel, sources said that Papandreou briefed her on a Greek proposal for a different financial support mechanism. The two leaders agreed, the sources added, to examine the issue through specially appointed officials of the two governments. The meeting was termed by the Greek premier as constructive, the sources added.

    Addressing the Alliance's Summit earlier, Papandreou said that NATO's new strategic concept was to give a new direction in tackling problems, which would be solved through "synergies of more countries".
