  • [01] FM Kotzias to visit Vienna, Bratislava

    Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias will visit Austria and Slovakia this week in an attempt to restore the cooperation and communication channels that have recently been tested.

    On Wednesday Kotzias will have private talks and a working lunch with his Austrian counterpart Sebastian Kurz and will meet with Austrian parliamentarians. The Greek minister will outline Greece's positions on the refugees issue and a series of issues related to the Greek foreign policy with the view to improving bilateral relations and restoring communication channels.

    On Friday, the Greek Foreign Minister will visit Slovakia and will hold talks with his Slovak counterpart Miroslav Lajčák. Kotzias will also meet with the President of the Slovakian Republic Andrej Kiska.

    [02] Skouries technical study approved; construction to recommence

    Eldorado Gold Corporation on Monday confirmed that Hellas Gold S.A., a Greek subsidiary of Eldorado, has received from Greece's Ministry of Energy and Environment the approval of the updated Technical Study for the Skouries Project in Halkidiki, Northern Greece.

    The approval of the Technical Study enables Hellas Gold to recommence construction activities at the Skouries Project site, which were suspended in January of this year.

    Paul Wright, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado, commented: "We are all very pleased with the receipt of this approval and greatly encouraged by the ongoing interaction between Hellas Gold and the Ministry and its technical services. This constructive engagement has contributed to other recent approvals including the Skouries Building Permit (February 2016), and the Olympias Installation Permit (March 2016). I believe there now exists a greatly improved shared understanding, appreciation and alignment between the Company and the Ministry in regards to the substantial benefits to be gained by the Greek society and economy through the collaborative responsible development of mineral resources in Greece. We look forward to working together with the Ministry to advance the Skouries and Olympias Projects for the benefit of all stakeholders."
