  • [01] Tsipras, Sargsyan express support to ceasefire in Syria

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the Armenian president Serzh Sargsyan on Tuesday in their joint statements expressed their full support to the recent ceasefire in Syria.

    As Tsipras said, they stressed the need for effectively combating terrorism and the necessary conditions for reconciliation in the country. He noted that the end of the war in Syria and the restoration of normalcy are the main factors for stopping the unprecedented refugee flows from Syria to Europe.

    Tsipras spoke of the huge effort of the government and the Greek people to receive the thousands of refugees and was briefed on the relevant efforts made by Armenia.

    Both of them agreed that the refugee crisis does not concern specific countries, but the entire international community, "hence coherent policies are required in solidarity climate for addressing this crisis," Tsipras underlined.

    Bilateral agreements were signed before the statements.

    [02] ND leader: Condition at Idomeni a slap on civilised Europe's face

    The condition in Idomeni is a slap on civilised Europe's face, stated main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis who visited on Tuesday the refugees camp in Idomeni and made a plea to government, even at the ultimate hour, to draft an organised evacuation plan for the refugees because, as he said, a time health bomb can be created due to the adverse weather conditions.

    Mitsotakis was briefed by the UNCHR and the Medicines Sans Frontieres representatives, the police and the medical staff on the conditions and after the end of his visit stated:"The conditions here are unhuman (...) The government must face this huge humanitarian crisis and unfortunately the government and the state are absent".

    [03] Greek merchant shipping fleet up to 4,092 vessels, Committee says

    Greek-interest merchant shipping fleet totaled 4,092 vessels in February 23, 2016, up 35 vessels compared with the same period last year, the Greek Shipping Cooperation Committee said in a report.

    The London-based Committee said that the data included 347 vessels currently ordered in international shipyards. The Committee said, however, that vessels under the Greek flag fell by 30 to 809 vessels in the same period.
