  • [01] Tourism body sees positive signals for the sector in 2016

    There are positive signals for Greek tourism in 2016, the president of the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE) Andreas Andreadis told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.

    He said last minute reservations are on the rise and estimated that around 25 million tourists will come to Greece this year - excluding cruise passengers.

    Referring to revenues, he stressed the importance of higher revenues to positevely affect GDP in the third and fourth quarters. "This is our bet," he underlined.

    Moreover, Andreadis estimated that October will be a positive month for the sector and that the country has benefited from the drop in Turkey's tourism.

    [02] Asylum agency examines application of one Turkish officer in extradition case

    Greek authorities examined on Friday the asylum application of one of the eight Turkish soldiers whose extradition has been formally requested by Turkey, on the claim that they took part in the failed coup attempt last month.

    "We are ready to do what is humanly possible [and] legally permissible, with the maximum diligence, to prevent the extradition of eight innocent people to Turkey," the lawyer of one of the officers, Stavroula Tomama, told journalists after the official hearing.

    She also said the applications of the other seven men are expected to be discussed by the asylum agency as of Monday.

    [03] Issue of German war reparations definively closed, says German government spox

    BERLIN (ANA-MPA/F. Karaviti) - The issue of German war reparations has been definitively closed, German government spokesman Stephen Seibert said on Friday, responding to recent statements by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras who raised the issue.

    "The issue of German reparations is definitively, legally and politically closed," Seibert said, adding that the German government's position is clear and has been stated repeatedly.
