  • [01] President Pavlopoulos: Greece's path lies through Europe

    ANA-MPA -- President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Sunday underlined that Greece's place is in Europe, in statements after visiting the home of late Greek statesman and his former Greek president Constantine Karamanlis in Serres, northern Greece.

    "Our path is within Europe and this is the road we will travel and travel victoriously," he said at Karamanlis' home village of Proti. "We are called on today to complete Constantine's Karamanlis' European vision."

    The president noted that Greece had to travel this path with the other European peoples and act together with these other peoples to "fix" Europe so that it returns to its original values.

    Referring to the former statesman, he cited Karamanlis' example and dedication to democracy, duty and to serving the public interest and unity during difficult times and in major decisions "beyond and outside sterile party conflicts".

    Pavlopoulos, who embarked on a tour of Serres on Sunday, was earlier received and shown around the house by the late statesman's brother Achilleas Karamanlis and Achilleas' son, Serres MP Costas Karamanlis. The Greek president also signed the visitors' book.

    Earlier, Pavlopoulos had attended a service led by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I at Agios Nikitas Church in the city of Serres. After the ceremony, the Patriarch said that the president's name will always be in the Ecumenical Patriarchate's prayers and expressed hope that when he next returns to Greece, the crisis will be overcome.

    The president also visited flood-stricken areas in the municipalities of Amphipolis in Mesolaggia before his visit to Proti, while he is to attend an official luncheon held in honour of himself and the Ecumenical Patriarch.

    [02] Greek inflation rate at -1.9 pct in March

    ANA/MPA---Greece remained deep into deflation in March, with the consumer price index at -1.9 pct, Eurostat said on Friday. The EU executive's statistics service, in a report released here, said that a total of 12 EU member-states recorded negative inflation rates in March. Cyprus (-1.4 pct), Poland (-1.2 pct), Bulgaria and Lithuania (-1.1 pct) recorded the highest deflation rates after Greece, while the highest inflation rates were recorded in Austria (0.9 pct), Romania (0.8 pct) and Sweden (0.7 pct).

    The inflation rate in the Eurozone was -0.1 pct in March from -0.3 pct in February and compared with 0.5 pct in March 2014. In the EU, the inflation rate was -0.1 pct from -0.3 pct in February and 0.6 pct in March 2014. On a monthly basis compared with February, the inflation rate fell in three member states, it was unchanged in three and rose in 22 EU member-states.
