  • [01] Greek Parliament to discuss ongoing negotiations on Friday

    ANA - MPA -- Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will address Parliament at 18:30 on Friday and brief MPs on the latest crucial developments in the negotiations with Greece's creditors, during an off-the-agenda debate requested by Tsipras. 

    According to an announcement, the discussion will be conducted on the basis of article 142A of Parliament regulations. This stipulates that the prime minister's initial briefing or statement cannot exceed 10 minutes, while subsequent speakers and the prime minister's response are restricted to five minutes. The competent ministers also have the right to brief Parliament for up to 10 minutes for their first address and five minutes for their rejoinder.  

    [02] Greece's decision on IMF repayment is not an issue, EU Commission spokesman says

    ANA/MPA---Greece's decision to "bundle" its repayments to the IMF and pay them all together later is compatible with the IMF's regulations and does not undermine the country's ability to service its loan obligations, European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said.

    Simultaneously, European sources said that Greece's decision does not create any problems in its relation with the European Support Mechanism (ESM) of Luxembourg.

    Regarding a possible new meeting between the European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, Schinas said that while it is possible, Juncker has not sent an invitation so it will not likely happen in the immediate future.

    [03] Productive Reconstruction Min.: Our choice to support Russian natural gas pipeline beneficial for the country

    ANA/MPA---Greece is not a plot and can't be blackmailed, nor does it believe that with its choices in the energy sector it becomes part of a problem, stated on Friday Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis responding to US Department of State coordinator for International Energy Affairs Amos Hoschstein on Greece's stance before the Russian natural gas pipeline.

    In his statement, Lafazanis noted "On the contrary, our choice to support a pipeline carrying Russian gas on the Greek territory is nationally and economically beneficial and gives positive solutions for cooperation, sufficiency in energy and the safety of the region and of Europe. Greece is following with consistency a new independent and multidimensional energy policy with ambition to make the country a multilateral energy hub within which will be allocated and distributed the routes and the natural gas origin sources without exclusions and neo Cold War prejudice. The new emerging independent Greece is a source of stability, safety and trust for all the peoples. A force that shows a different way for peace, progress, justice and relations of equality among the countries."
