Greek PM thanks Croatian counterpart on assistance in putting out fire

ZAGREB, Sept 13 (Hina) - Greek Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis has thanked his Croatian counterpart Ivo Sanader for the assistance Croatia provided to Greece in putting out the disastrous fires that broke out in that country earlier this summer, the Greek Embassy said in a statement on Thursday.

The Croatian government had decided to send a water-carrying aircraft with two crews and four technicians to Greece to help in fighting forest fires there.

The Greek Embassy also carried the letter which Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis sent to her Croatian counterpart extending condolences on the deaths of 11 firemen who died in the 30 August wildfire on the island of Kornat.
