    Background: While the former Turkish Government is being tried on charges including organising the 1956 anti-Greek rioting in Istanbul, Turkish Foreign Minister Selim Sarper arrived in Athens with his wife October 20 for a two-day official visit. They were greeted by Greek Foreign Minister Evangelos Averof.

    Greek and Turkish flags flew side by side as the two Foreign Ministers inspected a guard of honour. Minister Sarper made a speech calling for increased friendship between the tow nations. He then drove into the city to meet Greek Premier Karamanlis.

    During his visit, Minister Sarper is to have extensive talks with Premier Karamanlis and members of the Greek Cabinet. Subjects are expected to include Greek-Turkish fishing limits; co-operation in financing public works construction in Cyprus; and the problems of N.A.T.O., of which both countries are members.
