Russia Prominent In Balkan Settlement: Greek President

Russia is playing an essential part in maintaining international stability, especially in Balkan settlement, President Konstandinos Stephanopoulos said to a news conference. The Balkan danger is alive and has to be reckoned with, said Greece's President as he called to regard tentative developments solely within a dialogue framework with guarantees of frontier inviolability and compliance with ethnic minorities' rights. Past Russian experience of Balkan activities and Moscow's eagerness to promote settlement in that part of Europe are precious to the international community, stressed President Stephanopoulos--a point he had advanced on a number of previous occasions.
