    [02] Sculptures of Stoa of Attalos in ancient Agora to be showcased

    (ANA-MPA) -- The magnificent sculptures of the Stoa of Attalos at the ancient Agora -- off the northern end of the Acropolis -- in central Athens will be showcased in the upper floor of the two-storey 159 BC structure, which will reopen to the public after remaining closed for three decades. Dozens of stone antiquities will be put back on display, together with a plethora of antiquities that have not been previously exhibited. The Stoa of Attalos houses the Museum of the ancient Agora. Its exhibits are mostly connected with the Classical Athenian democracy. (ANA-MPA)

    [03] Gov't: Frontex presence lauded

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA / V. Demiris) The presence of Frontex forces along the Greek-Turkish land border -- Evros River region -- has helped reduce the pressure from illegal migration in that area, Greece's Citizens' Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis told his EU counterparts here on Thursday.

    Addressing the EU Justice and Home Affairs ministers' council, Papoutsis cited the European Commission's report on protecting the EU's external borders and (ANA-MPA) preventing illegal migration and stressed that the observed reduction in migration flow after the deployment of the EU border agency's Rapid Border Intervention Teams (RABITs) in Evros was significant.

    [04] ND: Econ growth only exit from crisis

    (ANA-MPA) -- Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras on Thursday outlined his party's positions on all crucial issues, including the debt- and deficit-plagued Greek economy.

    Speaking at a reception hosted in his honor by EU member-states' envoys in Athens, Samaras outlined his position on the memorandum, the reasons he called for his party to reject the plan during a Parliament vote, and his proposals for a new "economic policy mix", as he called it, stressing that "economic growth is the only way out of the crisis".

    Samaras focused on the fact that the economic policy followed by the government is causing greater recession instead of reducing the deficit, while the debt increases uncontrollably.

    As regards Greek-Turkish relations, the ND leader said the legal status of the Aegean, which is in compliance with international law and the Law of the Sea, should be respected. (ANA-MPA)
