DEMARCHE TO NATO: As the NATO Council convened in Paris yesterday for a two-hour confidential meeting to examine Greek charges regarding Turkish vandalism in Cyprus and other hostile actions by Turkey, the government of Constantine Karamanlis issued a demarche to all ambassadors of NATO powers and took all the appropriate political and military measures to ensure the country’s security. An official announcement was issued stating that Turkish military movements were probably aimed at creating an impression and that the Greek army was on the alert, ready to repulse any attack.
