  • [01] Tusk: Eurogroup for Greece in the next days

    "We must avoid a new situation of uncertainty for Greece. A date for a Eurogroup meeting needs to be set, and not in the distant future. It needs to be set in the next days, not weeks," European Council President Donald Tusk on Wednesday said in his statements to reporters after his meeting in Brussels with the President of Albania, Bujar Nishani

    [02] Contingent measures and debt issue to blame for failure of agreement

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA/M. Aroni) - The so-called contingent measures and the debt issue were the reasons why the Greek economic staff and the institutions did not reach an agreement, a eurozone official told ANA-MPA on Wednesday.

    Greece and the institutions, he said, have agreed on all measures of the package that correspond to 3 percent of GDP. However, they have not agreed on contingent measures (2 percent of GDP) that the institutions are asking to be implemented in case the 2008 fiscal targets are not met.

    The same official said that the "huge discrepancies" between the institutions and Greece on debt is another reason why the Eurogroup will not take place on Thursday as it was planned.

    As he said, the institutions need to examine all the options of debt relief based on the latest economic figures released by Eurostat.

    [03] Few refugees arrived at northen Aegean islands in 24h

    The number of refugees arriving at the islands of northern Aegean have been significantly reduced as a result of the measures taken by the Turkish authorities following the implementation of the EU-Turkey agreement.

    More specifically, 62 migrants arrived at Lesvos and nobody at Chios and Samos over the last 24 hours.

    [04] The countdown for the worst government of the post-Junta period has started, New Democracy leader Mitsotakis says

    The countdown for the worst government of the post-Junta period has started, main opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday said in the first meeting of the new political committee.

    Mitsotakis said that the meeting signals a new course for New Democracy adding that the party will open to society. "We want the citizens with us so that the worst government of the post-Junta period goes away," he underlined.

    "Our historic mission is the recovery of Greece ... under the condition that this incompetent government leaves," he added.

    The measures the creditors are asking for is a result of the prime minister's lack of credibility, Mitsotakis stressed.
