  • [01] Leftist parties on visit by Israeli PM to Greece

    (ANA-MPA) -- The Communist Party of Greece (KKE), in reaction to Monday's planned visit by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his scheduled meeting with Prime Minister George Papandreou, charged on Sunday that the PASOK government is assuming "great responsibilities since, continuing the policy of New Democracy, it not only supports politically, but is developing military cooperation with Israel with joint exercises and agreements."

    KKE also called on the people of Athens to participate in a demonstration at the War Museum on Monday afternoon and an ensuing march to the Israeli embassy in Athens.

    Meanwhile, the Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) party issued a similar announcement, stating that the government's foreign policy is moving along "slippery paths ... it is looking at the past and not the future, during a period where international balances are changing."

    [02] Fires on Crete, Kythira

    A wildfire broke out on Saturday at the Aghia Moni site on the island of Kythira island, in the southeastern Aegean, and was reported as still in progress on Sunday.

    A fire brigade unit reportedly contained two of the blaze's three fronts over the night.

    Another wildfire was reported in Ierapetra, Crete, burning brush land in the Selakano site. One water-dropping helicopter and 10 fire engines along with a unit of fire-fighters were dispatched to the scene.
