  • [01] Foreign ministry on new Albanian certificates

    (ANA-MPA) -- The removal of designations of a holder's ethnic origin from new certificates issued by Albania was a decision that raised questions regarding its motives, Greek foreign ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras stressed on Thursday.

    The spokesman pointed out that the decision reversed the practice of decades and he also noted delays in completing a census of Albania's population due to pressures from nationalist circles opposed to the inclusion of questions on ethnic origin, language and religion.

    Combined, these two developments gave the impression that Albanian government decisions were slowly falling in with the dictates of extremist nationalist elements that disputed the existence of ethnic minorities in the neighbouring country and systematically undermined bilateral relations between Albania and Greece, Delavekouras said.

    [03] Greece to auction 10 million tonnes of carbon emission rights in June

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greece will hold the first auction of 10 million tonnes of unused carbon emission allowances via the Athens Stock Exchange within the month, the Greek environment, energy and climate change ministry announced on Thursday.

    The environment ministry has signed a contract with the ASE, which has undertaken to conduct the auctions.

    The emission rights on auction are from the allowances set aside for new units in 2008-2012. These were held back to be given to new industrial units that were forecast to begin operating during this period, after the initial allocation of carbon rights by each state. As a result of the economic crisis, however, there were fewer investments in Greece and rights for 10 million tonnes of CO2 emissions remained unclaimed and will now be auctioned off.

    Under Community legislation, power production units, oil refineries, cement factories, paper mills and other industrial sectors must have carbon emission allowances equal to the volume of CO2 they release into the atmosphere. (ANA-MPA)
