Greek Prime Minister Konstandinos Karamanlis, who arrived Monday in a one-day official visit to Bosnia-Herzegovina, said in Sarajevo that Greece supports Bosnia's progress towards the European Union and NATO. Karamanlis, who met his Bosnian counterpart Nikola Spiric, also said Greek authorities would continue to assist their Bosnian colleagues in reaching the goal of Euro-Atlantic integration.
During the visit Greek and Bosnian officials signed agreements on evasion of double taxation and economic and technological cooperation between Bosnia-Herzegovina and Greece.
Karamanlis also attended the official opening of Bosnia- Herzegovina's government building in the downtown Sarajevo that was renovated with Greek funding of 19 million euros (26 million dollars) through the Foundation for Rebuilding the Balkans.
The building had been badly damaged during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The new building was symbolically named the building of Greek - Bosnia-Herzegovina Friendship.
While in Sarajevo Karamanlis also met with the members of Bosnia's tripartite state Presidency.
