Η ελληνική βαλκανική πολιτική στα δελτία ειδήσεων του ΕΙΡΤ Ιανουάριος - Αύγουστος 1975

Δημήτριος Πανταβός

Abstract


Greek diplomacy had to be re-established, after the restoration of the
Hellenic Republic in 1974. Prime Minister Konstantinos Karamanlis aimed at
the improvement of bilateral relations with Bulgaria, Romania and Yugoslavia.
Karamanlis believed that through the reinforcement of bilateral relations,
he could establish substantial multilateral relations among balkan
countries. This paper presents the Greek Balkan policy during the first semester
of 1975 through news of the Greek radio. Although radio is a mild
diplomatic mean, Greek radio news succeeded in broadcasting Karamanlis’s
Balkan goals. Greek radio avoided any rhetoric exaggerations and enthusiastic
reports upon the Greek-Balkan relations, but insisted on announcing
diplomatic meetings, the low level ones included. Exceptions were made only
for Karamanlis’s visits in Beograd, Bucharest and Sofia. Discourses with the
Romanian, Yugoslav and Bulgarian leaders Ceauşescu, Tito and Zhivkov
were carried out in warm atmosphere and encouraged Karamanlis to promote
his idea about multilateral relations in the Balkan peninsula during the
Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe (CSCE) in Helsinki.
