  • [01] We do not agree with the spirit of the sanctions against Russia, Alternate Foreign Min. Chountis says

    ANA/MPA---"We do not agree with the spirit of the sanctions against Russia, which has adverse repercussions not only in agriculture as far as the economy of our country is concerned, but also more generally," Alternate Foreign Minister for European Affairs Nikos Chountis said in an interview with ANA-MPA.

    "Other EU countries have also reacted in a similar way, due to the implications of the sanctions," he noted and added: "Our objections, in essence, will be expressed by the Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias to the Council of Foreign Ministers. Some member states hastened; this haste was reflected in the declaration by which the new Greek government expressed its discontent ... as an announcement-statement of the heads of states was issued, without Greece having been informed or without the Greek Prime Minister having been consulted. They knew that we were in a transitional phase and the prime minister's opinion could have been taken into consideration," he said.

    The full audio interview is available for subscribers at the ANA-MPA website.

    [02] Finance Minister Varoufakis to visit Rome next week

    ANA/MPA---Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis will visit Rome next week to meet with his Italian counterpart Pier Carlo Padoan, according to an Ansa news agency report from Athens.

    Padoan is among Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi's closest associates and has stated to Italian media that he is optimistic and believes that a solution will be found for the problem of the Greek debt because Greece's stay in the eurozone is not only to Greece's interests but to the European Union's interest.

    [03] Alternate Social Security Min. Stratoulis: We guarantee that pensions will be paid

    ANA/MPA---Alternate Social Security Minister Dimitris Stratoulis on Thursday reassured that the pensions will be paid on time.

    "We guarantee the pensions up to the last cent and not only for March but for all the next years," Stratoulis told ANT1 TV, adding that whatever problems exist will be solved.
