  • [01] Papandreou to meet EU Ombudsman, BoG chief

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou is scheduled to have separate meetings on Monday afternoon with European Ombudsman Nikiforos Diamandouros, with Bank of Greece, the country's central bank, governor Nick Garganas, and with presidium of the OTOE federation of bank employees' unions.

    Also, PASOK Europarliamentarians Stavros Lambrinidis, and Anny Podimata, and the party's officer for Environmental and Spacial Planning issues Spyros Kouvelis will hold a press conference at the PASOK headquarters in central Athens to present a one-day open event scheduled for Saturday at Syntagma Square on the theme "Environment-Energy-Climate Change".

    The event is organised by the PASOK Europarliamentary Group, in cooperation with the party's Environment division, ahead of the UN-sponsored World Environment Day, which is observed on June 5 each year.

    [02] Humanitarian aid to Myanmar

    A ship carrying a third despatch of humanitarian aid from the foreign ministry to Myanmar set sail late Saturday night from the port of Lavrio near Athens.

    The "Mercury" was carrying eight containers containing medicines, tents, food and bed clothes donated by the national defence ministry, the health ministry, the Greek Red Cross, non-governmental organisations, food industries, and private citizens.

    The foreign ministry's Hellenic Aid service has previously sent two despatches of humanitarian aid to Myanmar with Air Force C-130 helicopters.

    [03] Kassimis tours S.Italy

    Deputy Foreign Minister Theodoros Kassimis continued a tour of several Greek-speaking villages in southern Italy over the weekend, where he met with local authorities and residents.

    The deputy foreign minister, accompanied by the Greek ambassadors in Rome and the Vatican, touched on much of the common heritage shared by the region and Greece.

    "We feel brothers with the Greek-speaking Italians, and for this reason we must build closer and more creative bonds to enable us to help young people to preserve their roots and to come closer to Greece," Kassimis said, adding that Greece will do the best it can, using language and culture as a tool.
