  • [01] Greece will not become 'storage place' of Europe's illegal migrants

    ANA-MPA/Greece will not become a "storage place" of Europe's illegal migrants, Greek citizens' protection minister Christos Papoutsis stressed Wednesday on Corfu, where a regular meeting of the Council of Europe's (CoE) parliamentary assembly (PACE) Committee on Migration, Refugees and Population is taking place.

    "Only those migrants who have the right to international protection or right to asylum, and those who have legal work and residency permits, will remain in Greece. No one else," Papoutsis said during the first day of the two-day meeting.ana-mpa

    "All others should receive the clear message: they will leave Greece, either through voluntary repatriation or obligatory expulsion. We are absolutely determined in that direction," Papoutsis warned, and called on the EU to back its member states situated on the EU's external borders, instead of "punishing them".

    "Greece supports every proposal that reinforces the Schengen agreement, and at the same time rejects every thought that overturns the acquis communautaire. The Schengen acquis provides for enhancement of the controls at the EU's external borders, and consequently that is where the focus must be placed for dealing with possible deficiencies, and not 'punishment' of the member states that are on the (EU's) external borders," the minister stressed.

    [02] BoG chief: Eurozone exit speculations 'ludicrous'

    [03] 'Greek Flavour Journeys'

    Greek Flavour Journeys, a veritable feast of Greek culinary delights, wound up in Athens' downtown Klafthmonos Square on Tuesday with 100 eminent members of the Greek Chefs' Club concocting an immense traditional Greek Salad weighing more than 700 kilos.

    The salad contained a plethora of fresh, nutritious ingredients from all over Greece, that make up the trademark salad that is known throughout the world as, simply, "Greek Salad", comprising cucumbers, olives, tomatoes, feta cheese, extra virgin olive oil, green peppers, onions, and 'paximadia' (rusks).

    The salad was then divided into 8500 servings, most of which were delivered to the City of Athens for distribution by the Homeless Foundation to the city's homeless, while spectators at the event also shared in the treat.

    The two-day event featured popular Greek dishes from all over the country, made with locally-grown products from the dishes' place of origin.

    [04] FinMin on OTE

    ANA-MPA/The Greek government will activate an option contained in an existing contract between the Greek state and Deutsche Telekom to sell an additional 10 pct equity stake in Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE) to the German group, Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou told a Deutsche Telekom delegation during a meeting on Wednesday in Athens.ana-mpa

    Under an agreement reached in 2008, the German telecoms group is obliged -if the Greek state requests it - to buy an additional 10 pct equity stake in OTE at a pre-agreed price.

    This price will be 15 pct higher than the average share price of the last 20 session on the Athens Stock Exchange (ASE).
