The measures announced by the Bank of Greece to boost investors' interest appeared to have played a major role in the recovery. Meanwhile the National Economy ministry has tabled a bill in Parliament to give legislative status to measures announced by the Board of the Stock Exchange for the transparency and the protection of investors. The National Economy minister Yannos Papantoniou, who is in Washington for the International Monetary Fund session, said that the Greek bourse had a much higher performance than the other european stock exchanges.

    [04] BILL CLINTON MET BULENT ECEVIT YESTERDAY

    The Turkish prime minister Bulent Ecevit yesterday met with the American president Bill Clinton. They discussed issues such as the Greek-turkish relations, the Cyprus dispute as well as Turkey's request for a considerable increase in American economic aid to Ankara. Commenting on statements by the Turkish prime minister about a package solution on the Aegean and Cyprus, the Greek government spokesman Dimitris Reppas has said that the Cyprus problem is an internaitonal problem and should not be linked to Greek-turkish relations. Mr Reppas said that Greece and Turkey could easily handle their problems if both countries took advantage of the international law. He added that as regards the Aegean, Turkey has been advised to have recourse at the International Court at the Hague. Mr Reppas also said that statements by Turkush officials indicated that Ankara still adhered to stands which did not allow any optimism for a Cyprus settlement. He added that as an international issue, the Cyprus question was being dealt with within the United Nations context.
