From the Summary: "The conservative New Democracy party won the March 2004 national election. In February 2005, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis backed opposition politician Karolos Papoulias for President. The government has an ambitious free-market economic policy to enhance growth and create. Its foreign policy focuses on the European Union, relations with Turkey, reunifying Cyprus, the Balkans, resolving a dispute with Macedonia over its name, and improving relations with the United States. Greece has assisted with the war on terrorism, but is not a member of the coalition in Iraq. This report will be updated if developments warrant.

Negotiations and Related Issues', by Carol Migdalovitz, and CRS Report RL32172, 'Macedonia (FYROM): Post Conflict Situation and U.S. Policy', by Julie Kim."
