Statement By The US President On Greek Elections

THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release April 10, 2000

STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

I congratulate Kostandinos Simitis, Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic, and his PASOK party for their victory in the Greek legislative elections on April 9.

I also applaud Kostandinos Karamanlis and the New Democracy Party for running a fine campaign. The elections demonstrated yet again the vitality of democracy in the land of its birth, and should serve as an example to the rest of the world.

The election results, and the debates fostered by the campaign, show a broad consensus in favor of the course Greece has chosen: economic prosperity at home and fuller integration with the European Union; leadership in building stability in the Balkans and Southeastern Europe; improved relations with Turkey; and progress toward a just and lasting settlement on Cyprus. On these and other issues, the United States pledges its continuing support and cooperation.
