  • [01] Athens details foreign policy priorities

    VIENNA (ANA-MPA) -- Alternate Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas outlined the new Greek government's foreign policy priorities in an interview published in a Thursday edition of a Vienna daily, including detailed responses on questions dealing with the pesky fYRoM "name issue", the Greek-Turkish relations and the increasingly menacing pan-European specter of illegal migration.

    Droutsas reiterated that Greece seeks to actively and forcefully promote the European integration (i.e. EU accession) of western Balkans states by the year 2014.

    [02] Gov't on pipeline project

    The Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline project is a significant project with geopolitical, economic and energy importance, Deputy FM Spyros Kouvelis said on Thursday.

    Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a Black Sea Business Forum in Thessaloniki, the minister said Greece and Bulgaria shared the same views on the project and underlined the strong interest of both countries to proceed with the plan.

    "In consultations with the Environment ministry we need to ensure all environmental terms and to begin building a project well designed to the benefit of the energy industry, citizens and Greece in general," Kouvelis said.

    He said the Black Sea region was the natural "backyard" of Greece and that the country needed to boost cooperation in business activities with neighbouring countries and cooperation for sustainable and green development in the region.
