US President George Bush has welcomed progress by Greece in combatting terrorism as police come close to unraveling the notorious November 17 terrorist group.
In a letter to Prime Minister Costas Simitis, Bush said the Greek government's current action against terrorism was a sign of broader cooperation between the two countries in the battle against terrorism.
The progress made in combatting terrorism would have a favorable impact on security for the 2004 Olympic Games to be hosted by Athens, he added.
