  • [01] EU authorities informed about European borders' violation, Deputy FM Amanatidis says

    Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis Amanatidis in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency's radio station Praktoreio 104.9 FM on Monday stressed the need for a political negotiation so that the IMF and the institutions reach and agreement and the programme review is concluded.

    "Our country has met its commitments," he underlined adding that now it is Europe's turn to meet its own commitments.

    Referring to the Turkish provocations, he said that they were addressed with calmness, readiness, sobriety and vigilance. "We have made the necessary movements. The European authorities have been informed about the violation of the EU borders," the Deputy Foreign Minister noted and expressed the hope that Turkey will not escalate its acts after the ruling of the Supreme Court not to extradite the eight Turkish offices that fled to Greece after the July attempted coup.

    [02] PM Tsipras to speak on the phone with Chancellor Merkel

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is expected to speak on the phone with German Chancellor Angela Merkel before her visit on Friday to Turkey.

    According to sources, the German Chancellor asked to speak with Tsipras. The discussion will focus on the EU-Turkish relations and on the Cyprus issue.

    [03] Corinth-Patras motorway ready at the end of March, says Infrastructures Min. Spirtzis

    Infrastructures and Transport Minister Christos Spirtzis said that Corinth-Patras motorway will be delivered at the end of March and estimated that Thessaloniki metro will operate at the end of 2019 or early 2020 in an interview with Athens Macedonian News Agency.

    Finally, he said that the introduction of the e-ticket will radically change the urban transport in Athens "we will be able to draw better the itineraries and their link with the metro stations and to also plan another pricing policy depending on the trip of every citizen, a wider and in depth social policy for the weaker groups of citizens".

    [04] Minor quake jolts Lesvos

    A minor quake measuring 3.7 on the Richter scale shook the island of Lesvos on Monday at 10:00.

    The quake's epicentre was located on the opposite Turkish coasts north of Lesvos in the Edremit (Adramyttium) Gulf between Lesvos and the Turkish coasts.

    The seismic activity observed in the region in the last period does not worry the seismologists.
