  • [01] Medvedev eyes meeting with Papandreou in Astana

    MOSCOW (ANA-MPA / Th. Avgerinos) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev plans several bilateral contacts with foreign leaders on the sidelines of a two-day OSCE summit in Astana, Kazakhstan - which opens on Wednesday - including with Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou.

    "We want to profit from our stay in Astana for the holding of a series of important meetings, both with the Kazakh President as well as other leaders," Medvedev's assistant, Sergei Prikhotko, told reporters at the Kremlin on Monday, adding that a meeting with Papandreou is being prepared.

    [02] Civil mobilisation ordered

    (ANA-MPA) -- The maritime affairs ministry on Monday afternoon announced the civil mobilisation of merchant seamen serving in the domestic coastal shipping sector, following a decision by a union representing the latter to declare another 48-hour strike hours earlier.

    The strike, patterned on rolling 48-hour industrial actions, has continued for the past seven days. (ANA-MPA)

    "Unfortunately, the intransigence of both sides and the display of social irresponsibility have led to another deadend, and the continuation of the strike. The result of these actions has caused a dire social need, particularly for the public health, (ANA-MPA) due to the shortages of pharmaceuticals and medical services towards sensitive populations in our islands," Minister Yiannis Diamantidis said in a statement.
