U.S., Greece Disagree on Voice of America

November 07, 1986|From Reuters

ATHENS — Greek-U.S. negotiations on a new agreement covering operations of the Voice of America (VOA) relay station in Greece ended Thursday without agreement, a Greek Foreign Ministry statement said.

The last Greek-U.S. agreement expired in 1978, but Voice of America has continued broadcasting on a year-by-year understanding between the two sides, officials said. A VOA station has been operating in Greece for more than 25 years.

The Greek national news agency ANA quoted informed sources as saying that the talks became deadlocked because the Greek side was only willing to negotiate a five-year agreement while the Americans wanted a 25-year accord.
