Main opposition New Democracy's leadership on Friday focused on this week's official trip to Washington and White House meeting by Greek Prime Minister at a session chaired by ND leader Costas Karamanlis.
Afterwards, a ND spokesman said it was too soon for a final evaluation of Simitis' talks in the US capital, including his meeting with George W. Bush at the White House. He did add, however, that there are serious questions "over what occurred or didn't occur."
Spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos noted that no progress was discerned on the long-standing Cyprus problem and the crucial "Euro-Army" issue, while saying his party will stand by its positions on foreign policy.
Finally, high-ranking ND deputy and former minister Dora Bakoyianni referred to what she called "poor preparation" for the prime minister visit and talks.
