Public order minister Michalis Chrysohoidis on Monday briefed main opposition New Democracy leader Costas Karamanlis on the government's efforts in combatting terrorism.
After the meeting at the ND headquarters, Chrysohoidis told reporters they had discussed the government's legislative initiatives, adding that the main opposition party had displayed a "responsible" stance and noting that ND had recently submitted "specific proposals" to the government.
Asked when the government would table in parliament a bill containing provisions on combatting terrorism, the minister said the justice ministry committee drafting the provisions was expected to complete its task around the end of February.
ND deputy responsible for public order issues described Monday's exchange of views as "fruitful", noting that there was cooperation between the government and the main opposition party on the issue and adding that "we are on a good path".
He also said ND agreed with the proposals being advanced by the government.
