  • [01] First meeting between PM Tsipras and main opposition ND leader Mitsotakis underway

    A first meeting between Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and newly elected New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis was underway on Tuesday, starting around 15:00. The meeting was arranged during a telephone call that the prime minister made to Mitsotakis on the night of his election.

    Tsipras and Mitsotakis will discuss social security reforms, the refugee issue, the electoral law and other domestic and foreign issues.

    Mitsotakis will meet with the other party leaders in the following days, and will be received by President of Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Wednesday.

    [02] PM Tsipras to address open event for first year anniversary of SYRIZA government

    "One year Left, One year struggle. We proceed" will be entitled an event that will be held on Sunday 24 January, one year-anniversary from the national elections and the victory of SYRIZA.

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will address the event at 18:30 that will take place at the Tae Kwon Do venue at the coastal Athens suburb of Paleo Faliro.

    [03] Alternate FM Xydakis' remarks to the EU General Affairs Council in Brussels

    Alternate Foreign Minister Nikos Xydakis participated in Monday's meeting, in Brussels, of the EU General Affairs Council (GAC) – the first under the Netherlands Presidency of the Council of the EU.

    According to a Foreign ministry's announcement, the main items on the GAC agenda were the presentation of the priorities of the Netherlands Presidency and preparation for the February 2016 meeting of the European Council. The refugee crisis, innovation and job creation, fiscal health and economic policy, energy and climate change were the main points of reference of the Foreign Minister of the Netherlands and chair of the GAC, Bert Koenders.

    In his remarks during the Council proceedings, Xydakis stressed that "the ambitious and, due to the refugee crisis, heavy agenda Holland is starting with coincides with a very difficult state of affairs in which the EU's cohesion, unity and integrity are being challenged. What is needed," he continued, "is the upgrading of the European value framework and a cohesive vision. The tool-box, short-term policies need to give way to mid- and long-term policies."
