    [02] Russia denies pipeline reports

    MOSCOW (ANA-MPA) - Russia does not intend to pull-out of the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline project, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin spokesman Dmitri Peskov said here on Wednesday.

    "The information that Russia has lost interest in the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline or that it is preparing to pull-out of the project does not correspond to reality," Peskov told the Russian Interfax news agency.

    "Moscow remains steadfast on all agreements regarding this project and continues to fulfill all obligations it has undertaken," the spokesman added. (ANA-MPA)

    Earlier in the day, a Transneft company spokesman, Igor Dyomin, denied a flurry of press speculation that Moscow was planning to abandon the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline project and redirect financing to other pipeline projects. (ANA-MPA)

    [03] Shipping tops China agenda

    (ANA-MPA) -- Maritime Affairs, Islands & Fisheries Minister Yiannis Diamantidis begins an official weeklong visit to China on Sunday for meetings with government officials, representatives of Chinese banks, maritime company executives and the president of the multinational Cosco group, Wei Jiafu.

    Diamantidis' closely watched visit aims to promote Greek ocean-going shipping interests in the world's second largest economy, prospects for more shipbuilding contracts in China as well as implementing bilateral cooperation foreseen in a relevant Sino-Greek memorandum -- including cooperation between ports and the countries' international organisations.

    According to the Greek embassy in Beijing's press and communications office, the minister will visit the Chinese capital between Feb. 20 and Feb. 24 and Shanghai between Feb. 24 and Feb. 26.

    Several Greek shipowners and representatives of maritime companies will accompany Diamantidis on the trip. (ANA-MPA)

    [04] Tribute to poet Elytis

    (ANA-MPA) -- The Athens Concert Hall (Megaron) will organise an international conference and two nights of poetry poetry and music in order to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nobel laureate poet Odysseas Elytis. The events have been organised in collaboration with the late poet's partner, Ioulita Iliopoulou.

    The plans were unveiled during a press conference given by the president of the concert hall, Ioannis Manos, on Wednesday.

    The year 2011 has been declared 'Elytis Year' by Greece's culture and tourism ministry, while the concert hall is just one of several foundations planning tributes to the noted 20th century poet.
