Prime Minister Costas Simitis on Monday expressed confidence that the efforts to stamp out terrorism would arrive at the desired result, talking after a meeting with President of the Republic Kostis Stephanopoulos.
"I am certain that we will reach a result that will lead to finally closing this chapter for Greece," Simitis stressed.
At the same time, he noted the need for patience and a responsible approach and stressed that the case could not be wrapped up overnight. The effort would require a lot of evidence and this meant a lot of work and a lot of time, he said.
Apart from the ongoing investigation into the terrorist group November 17, the prime minister also briefed the president on other domestic and foreign policy issues, particularly the latest developments in Turkey and issues related to the Greek economy.
