  • [01] Pittella expresses support to Greece; highlights the potential of Acheloos Valley

    The president of the Group of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament Gianni Pittella on Monday expressed his support to Greece and particularly the development potential of Acheloos Valley.

    "Greece needs to get out of the crisis," Pittella said and stressed the importance of protecting the natural resources and cultural heritage of Acheloos Valley for a better future. As he said, such development acts will help solve the problems created by the crisis.

    "With this statement, we want to express our willingness to do more and better things, to support and promote this region, to help its citizens, to promote Greece, which is in our hearts, and we must help it get out of that deep crisis, which has already lasted for so long."

    [02] Alt. FM Xydakis points out danger of extreme right rise in Europe

    Alternate Foreign Minister responsible for European Affairs Nikos Xydakis on Monday pointed out the danger of extreme powers in Europe to impose their rhetoric and agenda, in his opening address of the 47th parliamentary assembly of the Organisation of Black Sea Economic Cooperation.

    Referring to the rise of the extreme right indicated by the election results in European countries, Xydakis said "what we are experiencing is the rise of the extreme right and additionally to impose its rhetoric and agenda to traditional political formations".

    [03] Transport of refugees from Idomeni to accommodation centres to start on Tuesday, Kyritsis tells ANA-MPA; 54,185 identified refugees and migrants in Greece on Friday

    The transport of refugees from Idomeni to the new accommodation centres will probably start on Tuesday, the refugee coordinating committee spokesman Giorgos Kyritsis said in statements to ANA-MPA.

    He estimated that all the refugees will have been transferred in the next ten days adding that it will be a smooth relocation procedure and not a police sweeping operation.

    As he said, six former industrial premises with accommodation capacity 6,500-7,000 refugees are now available. "We believe that it will take up to ten days to transfer the refugees from Idomeni and in the meantime more places will have been found," he stated.

    Meanwhile, 54,185 identified refugees and migrants were on the Greek territory on Friday including 50 persons that arrived on the Greek islands in the last 24 hours.
