  • [01] GREECE READY TO CELEBRATE THE NEW MILLENIUM

    Athens is prepared to celebrate the new millennium with various concerts, shows and events to be held at the Acropolis, Thision, Syntagma square and Sounion. Events will also be held in Pireaus and other cities of Greece.Thousands of people are expected to attend the open-air events to celebrate the new millenium, following an open invitation by Athens mayor Dimitris Avramopoulos to all Athens residents. The municipality of Athens has also prepared a surprise program for new Year's eve.

    The Secretary General of Political Protection appeared reassuring in relation to the problems that may be caused due to the so-called "millenium bug". A report published in the Wall Street Journal notes that Greece has met all the criteria for dealing with the so-called millennium bug, although Cyprus and Turkey have failedto take all the steps deemed necessary. The same report expresses concern at the repercussions the date change may have on computer systems in the countries of eastern Europe.

Mr. Clinton said that the Cyrpus issue was one of his government's priorities.
