  • [01] Italian ambassador on Rhodes

    Italian ambassador to Greece Gianpaolo Scarante on Tuesday continued his tour of the major Dodecanese island of Rhodes, where he met with local prefectural and municipal officials.

    Specifically, a proposal for the organising of a scientific conference focusing on promoting the Dodecanese islands' noted architectural heritage was discussed, while Scarante also inaugurated the "Italian Week on Rhodes" series of events, dedicated to Nino Rota, sponsored by the Italian consulate on Rhodes in collaboration with local authorities.

    Additionally, the Italian envoy announced the commencement of works to restore and preserve the Italian military cemetery on the eponymous holiday island, which contains the graves of 200 Italian servicemen.

    [02] Latest Turkish radar interference reported in east Aegean

    Greece's military general staff on Tuesday reported yet another instance of radar interference over the eastern Aegean islet of Farmakonissi, the apparent "modus operandi" of a specific Turkish radar unit on the opposite Asia Minor coast that has attempted to ward off aircraft by claiming they are flying within Turkish airspace.

    The latest instance, following similar radar warnings conveyed by radio to Frontex border security patrols recently, was recorded by three Hellenic Air Force F-16s on a routine training flight over the Greek isle.

    The message was transmitted at 13.32, according to the general staff, while the pilots continued their training flight at 3,000 feet before returning to a base on Crete after the exercise's conclusion.

    [03] Stocks continue moving up

    Stocks continued moving higher at the Athens Stock Exchange on Tuesday, with the composite index of the market rising 0.59 pct to end at 2,667.62 points. Turnover was a strong 354 million euros of which 20.3 million euros were block trades.

    Most sectors moved upwards, with the Media (4.01 pct), Financial Services (2.28 pct) and Banks (1.90 pct) scoring the biggest percentage gains of the day, while Oil (3.41 pct), Construction (2.88 pct) and Chemicals (2.33 pct) suffered losses.

    The FTSE 20 index rose 1.04 pct, the FTSE 40 index ended 0.87 pct down and the FTSE 80 index eased 0.12 pct. Broadly, decliners led advancers by 111 to 94 with another 57 issues unchanged.
