    Main opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis is in Paris where he will meet with the OECD secretary general Angel Gurria, the French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron and the former President Nicola Sarkozy.

    Mitsotakis will have further meetings in the next period. According to sources, he is likely to meet with ECB president Mario Draghi in Frankfurt. On May 30 he will be in Luxembourg for EPP's 40-year celebration, where he will meet with leaders of the European People's Party and prime ministers. In June he will visit Moscow to have contacts with the Russian leadership.

    [02] A Syrian refugee hands over wallet with cash and credit cards

    A refugee from Syria who has been staying for a month in an accomodation centre at Tsepelovo, a village in Zagori region, Ioannina, found a wallet with cash and credit cards and rushed to find the owner.

    The 22-year old Assim found the wallet outside a taverna and went inside to look for the owner, a waiter said to ANA-MPA.

    Assim, who is from Damascus, was staying at the refugees camp in Idomeni with his mother and his two younger brothers.

    [03] TAP project to give growth boost to Greece, Energy Min Skourletis says

    "We are entering into a new phase for the economy. This project will offer a strong boost to move forward," Environment and Energy Minister Panos Skourletis said commenting on the TAP natural gas pipeline, which will be inaugurated on Tuesday in Thessaloniki.

    Speaking to "Praktorio 104.9 FM" radio, Skourletis noted that the Greek part of the pipeline, with a length of around 500 km crossing Northern Greece, will employ around 8,000 people initially and stressed that more indirect job positions will be created following completion of the project (at the end of 2019, early 2020).

    He added that during a meeting later today in Thessaloniki with his Bulgarian counterpart, Temenuska Petkova, will focus on the issue of building a Greek-Bulgarian pipeline (IGB), directed vertically towards TAP and extending towards northern Europe. They will also discuss the course of third large energy project for Greece, the LNG floating terminal in Alexandroupoli. "

    Dozens of Iraqis and Syrians, mostly members of families with children, gathered on Sunday at the main square of Sappho in Mytilene asking to be allowed to travel to other regions of Greece and then to Europe.

    The Iraqis and Syrians were shouting that they are refugees and not criminals.

    54,469 identified refugees and migrants were on the Greek territory on Monday including 49 persons that arrived on the Greek islands in the last 24 hours.
