  • [01] AMERICAN PRESIDENT PRAISES GREEK-TURKISH SOLIDARITY

    Addressing the union of Turkish businessmen in Constantinople yesterday, the American president, Bill Clinton, said the improvement in Greek-Turkish relations would have a beneficial effect on Turkey's candidacy for entry to the European Union. He underlined that the solidarity manifested between the two peoples after the recent earthquakes in both countries and the forthcoming reopening of the Cyprus talks in New York offered a unique opportunity which if properly exploited would bring huge political and economic benefits to the people of Turkey.

    [02] SCHEDULE OF AMERICAN PRESIDENT'S VISIT TO GREECE

    The Greek foreign ministry has announced that President Clinton will arrive in Athens at 6.30 on Friday evening. He will be officially received at the presidential mansion and later he will attend a banquet in his honour hosted by the Greek president, Kostis Stefanopoulos. On Saturday he will have meetings with the Greek president and the prime minister, Kostas Simitis, after which he will give a press conference. Later he will address Greek American businessmen at the Intercontinental Hotel in Athens. President Clinton is due to leave the Greek capital on Saturday evening. Strict security measures are already in force at the airport as well as along the route the president's cavalcade will follow, the American embassy and the residence of the American ambassador, Nicholas Burns.

    [03] GREEK PRIME MINISTER ATTENDS OSCE CONFERENCE

    The Greek prime minister leaves for Constantinople today at the head of the Greek delegation taking part in the summit of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. He is expected to make statements shortly before his departure. On the sidelines of the summit he will meet with the prime ministers of Luxembourg, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark and Turkey. The government spokesman, Dimitris Reppas, said there was no fixed agenda for tomorrow's talks between Mr Simitis and his Turkish counterpart, Bulent Ecevit, but that they would certainly discuss Greek-Turkish relations. He also reiterated there was no question of a tripartite meeting between prime minister Simitis, president Clinton and prime minister Ecevit.

    [04] JOINT STATEMENT BY GREEK AND TURKISH AMERICAN ORGANIZATIONS

    [06] OECD REPORT ON WORLD ECONOMY

    The biannual report of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development on the course of the world economy, which was released yesterday, forecasts an international growth rate of 3% this year. With regard to the Greek economy, the OECD report points out the dynamic growth shown during 1999 and predicts even greater results over the next two years. The report considers Greece's admission to European economic and monetary union as a foregone conclusion.
