  • [01] PM Tsipras meets EU Council President Schulz

    "Meeting with (European Council President Martin) Schulz, with whom we have shared beliefs in matters of principles concerning Europe," Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Thursday posted on Twitter.

    In another tweet, the Greek prime minister said: "The right of elected governments to choose the means of meeting the agreed targets is a matter of democracy and sovereignty."

    "We departed from Greece's friend, France, with satisfaction. The future of Europe is not a matter for technocrats," he had earlier posted on Twitter.

    [02] 'Idomeni cultural centre', a school for children refugees

    An independent group of volunteers at Idomeni set up a school for children refugees and migrants.

    The sign outside the big tent set up by volunteers from different countries reads "Idomeni cultural centre" and the lessons are held every day. The teachers are refugees that have studied maths or science or languages.

    According to the programme, breakfast is served at 9 am, followed by Maths lessons, Kurdish and Arabic language lessons while there are also courses for adults.

    On their part, the volunteers try to learn to the children languages such as English and German that will need in their new lives.

    "Many of the children do not know how to write or read due to the war. There are 11 or 12 year old children that have never been to a school," Daniel, one of the volunteers, said to ANA-MPA. "We need paper, pencils and books in the Arabic language," because the number of the children increases day after day, he added.
