  • [01] PM visits Fire Brigade Operations Center

    ANA-MPA/Prime minister George Papandreou on Thursday visited the Fire Brigade's Operations Center and the 6th fire brigade station, where he congratulated the corps on its "super-human efforts".

    He also praised the corps for its successful coordination in tackling fires, adding that efforts are being made to upgrade the fire stations in material means.

    The premier further stressed that coordination between the fire brigade and local governments and volunteers is the key to preventing a repeat of past tragedies.

    "We are in the middle of the summer, and hope that everything will go well," Papandreou added.

    [02] Consulates closed in restructuring of foreign ministry services

    ANA-MPA/Greece on Thursday announced the suspension of operation of its Consulates General in Hanover, Cologne, Leipzig and Naples and Consulates in Nice and Durban, in the framework of the foreign ministry's plan for reduction of expenditure and rationalisation of its services.

    Ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras made the announcement during a regular press briefing, adding that the Consulates General in London, Paris and Brussels will be abolished, while consular offices will be established in the Greek Embassies in those cities.

    The changes are part of a broader program of modernisation and restructuring of diplomatic services, Delavekouras said, adding that details of the program will be announced in the autumn.
