  • [01] Greek government maintains its red lines, FinMin Tsakalotos tells El Mundo

    The agreement achieved between Greece and its creditors will allow eventually the implementation of the governance model that Athens seeks, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos said in an interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo on Wednesday, adding that he and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras maintain their red lines in protecting the weak classes and the unemployed.

    Asked whether the deal with the troika constitutes a defeat of the radical let in Greece, Tsakalotos said: "There were things we gained and things we lost. If the deal was good or not, only time will tell."

    He said that one of the reasons the government backed down and signed is that it was not clear if outside the euro, Greece would be able to avoid an agreement with its lenders anyway, because there are issues "which don't just disappear by leaving the euro."

    [02] 804,465 people have entered Greece since start of 2015 - Coast Guard

    The Greek Coast Guard said on Thursday that a whopping 804,465 people have entered Greece from the beginning of the year until Dec. 21, showing the massive scale of the challenge facing the country.

    Of those people, about half (457,149) were refugees from Syria, while the rest 347,316 were economic migrants of 77 different nationalities, mainly Arabic and African countries. Regarding migrant traffickers the data show the majority are Turkish nationals and 12 were Greeks.

    Frontex announced recently it will launch Poseidon Rapid Intervention on 28 December, replacing the ongoing Joint Operation Poseidon Sea with a larger number of officers and technical equipment.

    The deployment will gradually rise to some 376 officers and interpreters on the ground. They will include experts in screening, debriefing, fingerprinting and forged documents from various EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries.
