  • [01] Imperative to have technical-level deal by Dec. 5, say Tsipras, Hollande

    It is imperative to have a technical-level agreement until the Eurogroup meeting on December 5 and discuss measures for debt relief by the end of the year, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and French President Francois Hollande agreed on Saturday, during a meeting on the sidelines of a cultural heritage conference in Abu Dhabi.

    Accoring to the prime minister's office, the two leaders discussed Greece's ongoing second program review, the country's relations with countries in the Persian Gulf, EU's relations with Turkey regarding migration, as well as the ongoing negotiations on Cyprus.

    Concerning migration, Tsipras and Hollande agreed that NATO's activity in the Aegean must continue and the EU-Turkey deal must be implemented.

    Ahead of Hollande's visit to Cyprus, the two sides welcomed the restart of talks, discussed developments on the issue and noted its importance in EU's relations with Turkey. They also stressed the need to end Turkey's aggressive rhetoric.

    Tsipras is currently meeting with Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan.

    [02] Customs office at Greek-FYROM border closed by farmers

    The customs office at Evzones, near Greece's border with FYROM, was blocked by farmers and livestock farmers from the municipality of Peonia on Saturday, who are protesting about the increase in taxation and changes in their social security fees.

    Speaking to Athens-Macedonian News Agency, the president of their union Thomas Karipidis, said the office will be closed until 15:00 unless "it is deemed necessary" to open it if traffic piles up.

    Around 50 tractors and 50 farming equipment have been parked around the customs office which closed at noon.
