  • [01] PM Tsipras invites leaders from six EU countries to Athens in September

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras invited on Thursday the leaders of six southern European Union countries to a conference in Athens on September 9, which will focus on challenges facing the EU at an economic, political and institutional level.

    The conference, which is currently being organized, will include France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Malta.

    [02] Agreement between EU and Turkey must be applied, says Alt. Migration Min. Mouzalas

    "The agreement between EU and Turkey must be applied" said Alternate Migration Policy Minister Yiannis Mouzalas noting that not only Turkey but also EU could breach the agreement and brought as an example the Czech president's stance.

    Speaking to SKAI television on Thursday, Mouzalas underlined that Turkey complies with the agreement and that the European Commission as well as other European leaders are trying to do the same every day.

    "We will be tried hard if the agreement collapses. If the flows start again, then no country will be able to deal with them...We are afraid, we are getting prepared and we are aware that if the problem returns then we will be tried hard," he said.

    Mouzalas also said that from the 60,000 refugees and migrants in Greece, 30,000-40,000 are entitled to leave for Europe but there are delays. "4,000 persons have been relocated and we have another 4,000 ready to leave but there are no vacancies in Europe".

    He underlined that Idomeni is one of the decorations that should be awarded to Greece because in two months the camp was evacuated very smoothly without any violence.

    Referring to the unorganised camp at Elliniko, he said that he is responsible and feels bad about it adding that the services offered are good; however, he did not commit on when the facility will be evacuated.

    He called German Chancellor Angela Merkel's stance very progressive adding that "she supported and continues to support us and has closed a number of loopholes".

    [03] Large fire burning pine forest in Argolida

    A wildfire that broke out shortly after 14:30 in the area between Porto Heli and Kranidi, in the prefecture of Argolida, is burning a pine forest of Korakia, the fire department said on Thursday.

    Authorities said 18 fire-fighting vehicles with 36 firemen, a land unit of 20 men and four aircraft have been dispatched to battle the flames. They also said although no villages are currently at risk, there are several summer houses in the wider vicinity.
