Greece: Karamanlis’ Balkan Vision

Addressing the summit meeting of the Southeast European Cooperation Process (SEECP), Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis stated that he was in favour of the incorporation of all SEECP members into the Euroatlantic structures, including the Former Republic of Macedonia. Within the framework of the SEECP process – an institution destined to enhance cooperation between Southeast European members – Karamanlis clarified that Greece seeks a win-win solution that would accommodate the demands of both countries and would benefit the entire region.  

Commenting on the role of the SEECP, Karamanlis greeted the evolution of the organisation into a firm institution such as the Regional Cooperation Council, which would be based in Sarajevo and housed in the Greek-Bosnian Friendship building, constructed with funds from the Greek Plan for the Reconstruction of the Balkans. In addition, the prime minister announced an initiative for establishing a regional development centre in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki
