    Background: Syrian Deputy Premier Abdel-Halim Khaddam arrived in Athens on Thursday (17 August) for talks with Greek leaders.

    His three-day visit, at the invitation of the Greek Government, returns the visit to Damascus two months ago of Greek Deputy Premier Stylianos Pattakos.

    While in Syria, Mr. Khaddam - who is also Foreign Minister - discussed steps to develop economic, cultural and tourist links between the two countries.

    Greece has been working for over a year to foster relations with Arab and African countries, which offer great scope for her exports.

    Mr. Pattakos has visited Egypt, Libya, Ethiopia, Kenya, Zaire and The Central African Republic as well as Syria.
