    Background: Premier Constantine Karamanlis attended the last phase of the Greek military exercise "Pluto" Sept 2 at the border town of Kilkis. Accompanied by members of his military staff and commander of NATO's South-Eastern European force, General Stork, he reviewed a guard-of-honour and then took the salute at a big parade of troops, tanks, armoured care and "Honest John" missiles.

    The main aim of the exercise was the surprise mobilization of reservists and the repulse of an "enemy attack". Some 25000 reservists and thousands of mules, trucks, carriages, motor-cycles and other means of transportation were ???ady for action in record time.

    In a speech later, Prime Minister Karamanlis said: "Greece has exhausted the limits of gullibility and does not intend to be taken by fraud to totalitarianism and tyranny - we are determined to remain a country of free people."
