  • [01] FM spokesman condemns incident at military cemetery in southern Albania

    (ANA-MPA) -- A foreign ministry spokesman on Thursday condemned an incident in neighbouring Albania this past week that witnessed the burning of wreaths laid at a military cemetery in Bobostitsa where Greek servicemen who fell on the Albanian front during WWII are buried.

    "This is an unacceptable incident, one that expresses circles that are unable to comprehend the new framework of relations between Greece and Albania, as well as the symbolism of the struggle against the Axis forces," spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras said during a regular press briefing.

    Asked about a bilateral agreement on the upkeep of military cemeteries, the spokesman said both Athens and Tirana have expressed their satisfaction, with only the pact's implementation now pending.

    [02] Stocks end 1.27% down

    Stocks ended significantly lower at the Athens Stock Exchange on Thursday, in a highly volatile session which pushed the market 1.63 pct higher early in the day. The composite index fell 1.27 pct to end at 1,497.75 points, with turnover rising to 115.987 million euros. Market sentiment was undermined by a surge in Greek bond spreads.

    The Big Cap index fell 1.59 pct, the Mid Cap index ended 0.94 pct lower and the Small Cap index eased 0.26 pct. The Commerce (1.42 pct) and Telecommunications (1.40 pct) sectors scored gains, while Travel (2.94 pct), Oil (2.25 pct) and Banks (1.96 pct) suffered the heaviest percentage losses of the day.

    Broadly, decliners led advancers by 93 to 65 with another 52 issues unchanged. Avenir (19.05 pct), Ilyda (13.04 pct) and Compucon (10 pct) were top gainers, while Euroline (19.18 pct), Elinoil (10 pct) and Akritas (9.88 pct) were top losers.
