  • [01] Alavanos demands free beach access, greenspace

    The leader of the Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) party Alekos Alavanos on Monday repeated demands for free and unobstructed access to all beaches in tandem with the expansion of greenspaces, particularly in the congested greater Athens area, during a meeting with the board representing the union of municipalities and communities of Attica prefecture (TEDKNA).

    Recent citizens' mobilisations throughout the month, vociferously supported by the small leftist Parliament-represented, aimed at opening a handful of beaches in southern coastal Athens that charged admission fee.

    [03] Athens lauds Russia-Italy natgas pipeline project

    The Greek government on Monday expressed its satisfaction over an agreement between the Russian energy giant Gazprom and Italian multinational Eni to build a natural gas pipeline between Russia and Italy, with the relevant minister saying Athens was positive towards any moves aimed to ensure energy security in the region and in Europe in general.

    Speaking to reporters, Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas said "we have been informed by our counterpart ministers from Russia and Italy over the South Stream natural gas pipeline project ... Both Greece and the European Union view this project as a positive development towards offering alternative routes of natural gas supplies to Europe".

    "Greece and Italy are working closely on a large project, along with Turkey and Caspian states, to build an underwater natural gas project supported by the European Union, scheduled to begin construction in 2008," Sioufas said, while again pointing to Greece's emergence as an energy hub in the wider region.
