Stephanopoulos in Madrid

President Costis Stephanopoulos (l) was welcomed in Madrid yesterday by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia at the start of a three-day official visit to Spain. Queen Sophia was born a princess of Greece and her brother, Constantine, was king until 1973. The Greek monarchy was abolished after a referendum in 1974. At a state dinner, both the Greek president and the Spanish king spoke of the problem of international terrorism. Both said they expected the Athens 2004 Olympics to be a success. Police said at least eight people had fallen victim to Othman’s biscuits in Attica, while dozens of complaints have been lodged with island authorities.
