  • [01] Pavlopoulos: Discounts on the sovereignty of Cyprus are not acceptable

    President Prokopis Pavlopoulos in a meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday said that it is very important that Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades has adopted a firm line which is also supported by the majority of political forces in Greece and Cyprus.

    "This is even more important when that line is aligned with the international law, mainly the European law, and it also constitutes the European line," he added.

    Moreover, Pavlopoulos stressed that "discounts on the sovereignty of the Republic of Cyprus are not acceptable" and "any retreat or withdrawal in this direction would be a violation of international and European law."

    "Greece, like Cyprus, is not willing to accept such retreats," he stated.

    [02] Three metro stations to remain open for the homeless

    Three metro stations in Athens will remain open during the night and until Friday, January 13, to protect the homeless from the freezing temperatures expected in the coming days, the ministry of infrastructure said on Tuesday.

    Greece has been gripped by a cold spell since last week with snowfall continuing in many parts of the country, including Athens' northern suburbs. Omonia, Monastiraki and Metaxourgio will welcome vulnerable citizens.

    A new ministry decision is expected next week depending on the weather conditions of the time.

    [03] ESM expects green light in January for Greek debt relief measures

    "We expect by the end of January the official green light for the Greek debt relief measures," said Calin Anev Jansa, a member of the European Stability Mechanism Board (ESM, in an interview to Dow Jones news agency, according to a post in the twitter account of ESM.

    "We have increased by 14 pct our target for long-term financing in 2017, to meet additional liquidity needs for the relief of Greek debt," the official ESM said. He added that the goal for long-term financing amounted to 57 billion euros, an estimate which may change during the year. He also noted that the ESM will issue bonds in dollars for the first time in 2017.
