George Katiforis, head of PASOK's Eurodeputies, during Tues-day's extraordinary meeting of the European Parliament's foreign affairs committee on the issue of the situation in the Middle East, had the opportunity to brief the members of the committee and EU High Representative for common foreign policy Javier Solana, on the success of the Greek police in their efforts to eradicate terrorism.
Katiforis stressed that the Greek authorities are proceeding systematically and with seriousness in the full eradication of the ''November 17'' terrorist organization which for 27 years was ''an open wound'' for Greek society but also cause for Greece's national interests and prestige abroad to be harmed.
Katiforis briefed the Eurodeputies on the Greek government's determination to proceed in the full investigation of the crimes and to the discovery of all those responsible so that the chapter of ''terrorism'' in Greece finally closes.
