KARAMANLIS IN LONDON
Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis began a three day visit to Great Britain
this week, accompanied by Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis and others.
Kostas Karamanlis, who delivered a speech at the London School of Economics, said Greece backed Macedonia in its Euro-Atlantic aspirations in the past and now as well, underlining that both countries had enhanced economic, business and touristic relations, which demonstrated Greece's sincerity in backing all western Balkan countries to join the EU, reported a MIA correspondent.
Karamanlis didn't want to answer to the question regarding the "Veto Threat" for Macedonia's accession into the EU unless the dispute was settled. He also avoided the question about the denial of the Macedonian Minority in Greece.
"The issue has historical and emotional feelings from both sides, but Greece demonstrates readiness for its settlement, thus it submitted proposals and waits the neighbour to reply," he said.
MD: He did also say that "Greece is a democratic state with democratic and open society where everyone can express freely." And you have to take such a person serious? What a joke!
