  • [01] PM Alexis Tsipras and French President Francois Hollande talk on the phone

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras spoke on the phone with French President Francois Hollande on Friday afternoon, discussing the negotiations underway on ways to ease the Greek debt ahead next Tuesday's Eurogroup, a government announcement said.

    In addition to their talks about Greece's debt, Hollande also thanked the Greek prime minister for the prompt mobilisation of Greek search and rescue forces in the Mediterranean, following the crash of an EgyptAir commercial aircraft on route from Paris to Cairo in the early hours of Thursday morning.

    [02] Greece can satisfy Russians interested in religious tourism, Kountoura says

    Greece is a destination open to all visitors "genuinely interested in religious tourism and truly seeking to find themselves," Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura noted on Friday, in statements to the ANA-MPA.

    It was a place where visitors could "find their soul and embark on such a spiritual quest while on a carefree holiday," Kountoura said during the launch of the first Conference on Pilgrimage and Relgious Tourism organised in Lagonissi as part of the cross-cultural 'Greece in Russia, Russia in Greece' year.

    The minister expressed hope that the conference marked the start of closer cooperation between Greece and Russia, noting the presence of clergy representing the churches of both countries at the conference, as well as all travel agencies dealing in theme tourism, and especially religious and faith tourism, in Greece and Russia.

    "We are promoting and projecting our religious, spiritual wealth. Both countries are joined by Orthodoxy through the range of all those good things that we share with Russia, with which we have had an unbreakable bond through the years. We want to strengthen this and satisfy all Russian tourists, who can make many choices. One of these choices is the entire range of theme tourism," Kountoura said, expressing confidence that Greece could satisfy all Russian tourists that chose to spend their holidays in the country.
