    U.S. Ambassador in Athens Nicholas Burns, in an interview with the Greek newspaper "Kathimerini" -the first interview since he arrived in Greece- stressed that the issues of the Greek continental shelf and Imia islands should be referred to the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

    Mr Burns also underlined that the U.S. government would like Turkey to accept the settlement of the disputes by the International Court.

    The US Ambassador noted that his country was against the arms race in the Aegean sea and urged the two sides to try and find a solution to their disagreements.

    Mr Burns announced international activities for the settlement of the Cyprus issue which-as he said- played a critical role in the Greek-Turkish relations.

    ATHENS, March 1st , 1998 (MPA)

    Greek journalist Grigoris Staktopoulos, 88, died yesterday of an acute inflammation of the lungs in the "Evangelismos" hospital and his funeral will take place in the 1st Athens Cemetery on Tuesday, 3rd of March, at 14:30.

    Mr Staktopoulos suffered a heart-attack on the 4th of January due to which he remained in hospital for 18 days. However, yesterday afternoon, feeling indisposed, he was transferred to the "Evangelismos" hospital where he passed away.

    Mr Staktopoulos, born in 1910 in Trapezounta of Pontos, worked in several newspapers including the illegal "Voice of the People" which belonged to the Macedonian Committee of the Greek Communist Party.

    In 1948, while working in the newspaper "Macedonia", he was accused as an accomplice in the murder of the American journalist George Polk, along with the GCP member Adam Mouzenidis who-as was later proved-was killed one month before mr Polk.

    However, he was sentenced to life imprisonment, sentence that was reduced twice leading to his release in April, 1960.

    "He died unvindicated", his wife said shuttered to MPA.
