  • [01] Piraeus to be decongested by end of week, says minister

    Piraeus port will be decongested from the bulk of refugees and migrants by the end of the week and it will be emptied by Easter, Alternate Defence Minister Dimitris Vitsas said in an interview with private TV channel Mega on Monday.

    "By the end of the week Piraeus will be decongested significantly and we'll start transferring refugees from Idomeni," he was quoted as saying.

    "There are currently 2,600 empty spots in accommodation centers and another 10,000 are being built, most of which will be ready by next Sunday," the minister added.

    [02] PM Tsipras speaks with Hollande, Biden on Greek program review, refugee issue, energy

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras had separate telephone conversations with French President François Hollande and U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Monday, his office said.

    In his talks with Hollande, they noted the need to conclude the country's program review very soon, as well as the full implementation of the July agreement, Tsipras' office said.

    Speaking with Biden, the two sides focused on the ongoing negotiations for Greece's economic program, developments on the refugee crisis and energy cooperation in the region. On the program review, both sides agreed for a need to conclude it quickly and start talks on debt relief in April.

    On the refugee crisis, Tsipras and Biden noted the efforts of Greece to manage the issue in a humane and effective manner, while on energy they discussed the operation of TAP and IGB pipelines.
