  • [01] EU summit on Gaza

    Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis will be leaving for Paris on Tuesday to participate in the European Union's informal meeting of foreign ministers that will focus on coordinating European policy on handling the crisis in the Gaza Strip.

    The meeting will be taking place at 18:30 (local time), with the first target being achieving an immediate ceasefire.

    A telephone conversation had preceded between Bakoyannis and her French counterpart and EU Council of Ministers President Bernard Kouchner.

    Bakoyannis will be also receiving a delegation of the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) on Tuesday, December 30 and at 11:00 hours. The meeting will be taking place at the request of the party's Parliamentary Group and will concern the latest developments in Gaza. The meeting will be held at the Foreign Ministry.

    [02] Public transports passes reduced

    Public transport fares in the greater Athens area are set to increase, whereas conversely, unlimited travel card prices will be reduced, effective on Jan. 1, according to a decision announced last May.

    The so-called integrated ticket used for all modes of public transport will be valid for 90 minutes and will cost 1 euro, up 20 cents.

    However, the monthly travel pass used for buses, trolleys and trams will cost 15 euros, down from 17.5 euros. Two new products, monthly cards for use on the electric rail network (ISAP) and the Athens metro will cost 25 euros and 30 euros, respectively. The monthly card for all public transports is reduced by three euros, to 35 euros.

    The annual travel passes for buses, trams and trolleys will be slashed by 25 euros, down to 150 euros, while the annual pass for all public transports will drop 30 euros, to 350 euros.

    The annual unlimited travel passes for ISAP and Metro will cost 250 euros and 300 euros, respectively.
