  • [01] Inner Cabinet focuses on natgas pipeline deal, heatwave

  • [01] Inner Cabinet focuses on natgas pipeline deal, heatwave

    An Inner Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, chaired by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, discussed a new natgas pipeline deal announced only a day earlier in Istanbul as well as measures against an ongoing heatwave and conclusions of an EU summit over the weekend.

    Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas underlined that the new pipeline will further upgrade the country as an energy hub, stressing that already close cooperation with Turkey in the energy sector is unaffected by the new plans.

    Commenting on the Public Power Corp.'s (PPC) performance during the heatwave and the unprecedented, for Greece, levels of power consumption recorded, Sioufas said all necessary measures have been taken to deal with the weather conditions.

    Interior Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos said over 40C temperatures will be recorded on Wednesday, while he also repeated that public sector agencies will close at noon on Wednesday to reduce power consumption levels.

    Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis, responding to the ubiquitous questions regarding when elections will be held in Greece, merely referred to Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis' statements of elections in March 2008, when they are normally scheduled.

    Finally, Economy Minister George Alogoskoufis said elections will be held at the appropriate time, echoing similar statements by other top ministers.
