  • [01] GREEK, TURKISH EXPERTS WIND UP DIALOGUE

    The second phase of the dialogue between Greek and Turkish foreign ministry experts winds up in Athens today. Yesterday's talks focused on matters concerning regional and cultural collaboration, while issues related to illegal immigration, crime and terrorism are on the agenda for today. At the end of yesterday's discussions, the two sides had a meeting with the Greek foreign minister, Giorgos Papandreou. Today Mr Papandreou is due to meet in Sarajevo with his Turkish counterpart, Ismail Cem, to assess the results of the initial contacts. Their meeting will take place on the sidelines of the European conference on Balkan reconstruction.

    [02] PM SIMITIS TO ATTEND BALKAN CONFERENCE

    The prime minister, Kostas Simitis, is going to Sarajevo today to take part in the conference, in which over 30 leaders from European countries will participate to discuss security in south-eastern Europe. The American president, Bill Clinton, will also attend the conference.

    [03] FRANCE DECLARES BACKING TO CYPRUS

    The French president, Jacques Chirac, has sent a letter to his Cypriot counterpart, Glafkos Kliridis, assuring him of his country's intention to contribute to the latest effort to resolve the long-standing Cyprus dispute. Mr Chirac said France held identical views on the Cyprus issue with those set out in a statement by the Group of Eight, which also expresses the international community's wish for a Cyprus settlement.

    [04] CYPRUS TO PROTEST OVER WORKS IN THE NORTHERN PART

    A Turkish ship yesterday delivered a mechanical digger to carry out fortification work in the Turkish enclave of Kokkina, in Cyprus, where a new road is being built. The Cypriot National Guard, which is closely monitoring the Turkish operations, is to make a formal protest to the United Nations.

    [05] MOST GREEK FOODS CLEAR

    54 samples of Greek foodstuffs sent abroad for laboratory checks have been shown to be clear of dioxins, while the results are awaited of checks on 29 other samples. Meanwhile the authorities in Belgium have closed down a further 175 poultry and pig-rearing units suspected of dioxin contamination. The Belgian government has been called on to explain why it refused to withdraw products containing pork that was believed to be dioxin-contaminated.

    [06] STRIKE CONTINUES AT ERT

    Journalists at Greek State Radio and Television are on strike, following a decision by the Union of Athens Daily Newspaper Editors which is protesting against the requirement of entry and exit cards for personnel entering the premises of ERT. The administration of Greek Radio claims the step is merely a security measure and has taken the matter to court. A decision is expected to be issued today.

    The funeral takes place in Zacharo, Ilia today of the 28-year-old female member of the forestry fire service who died while fighting a blaze on the island of Chios two days ago. Two of her colleagues who suffered severe burns are still in critical condition in hospital.
