Main opposition New Democracy on Monday called for a meeting of party leaders chaired by President of the Republic Kostis Stephanopoulos to discuss Greece's stance and the international situation after last week's terrorist strikes in the United States.
Greece will join ranks with its partners and allies in the European Union and should have its own voice and its own clear-cut position, ND spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos said after a meeting of the party chaired by ND leader Costas Karamanlis.
No decision was made at the meeting on whether Greece should contribute military forces, since it was not known what operations would be undertaken, Roussopoulos said.
