  • [01] Juncker sees 'good chance for success' at Thursday's EU Summit

    ANA/MPA---European Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans and Commissioner Johannes Hahn were negotiating with the Turkish authorities until 04.00 on Thursday morning and there is a good chance for success, stated European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker during a joint press conference with Parliament President Martin Schulz earlier in Brussels.

    Juncker added that he will be briefed in detail on the progress of the deliberations with Turkey with the Commission's representatives within the next few hours in order to be ready to brief the European leaders at the EU Summit that will focus on the migration issue to be held on Thursday afternoon in the Belgian capital. "There is nothing positive and final for the moment, however the talks are on the right course," he said.

    [02] Former Greek ministers attacked by members of far-right organisation in Ukraine

    ODESSA (ANA-MPA/ S. Papadopoulou) A delegation of Greek left-wing politicians, including former ministers under the previous cabinet Nadia Valavani and Kostas Isichos, were attacked by members of a far-right organisation in Ukraine on Wednesday, while visiting Odessa for talks with the city's Greek community.

    Speaking to the ANA-MPA, Valavani reported that the Greek delegation was followed and confronted by members of the far-right group, who demanded to know why they were in Ukraine. The delegation, which also included former MP Vassilis Hatzilambrou and journalist Aris Hatzistefanou, had to take refuge in a restaurant and seek the assistance of the consulate and Ukrainian police, she said.

    "[They] said we were enemies of Ukraine," Valavani told ANA-MPA, adding that this was the first time that a foreign delegation had been confronted in this way by far-right elements in Odessa. She said the harassment prevented a planned meeting with members of the Greek community in Ukraine and that the former ministers will return to Greece on Thursday.

    [03] Greek archaeologists dedicate awareness campaign "People and Monuments in danger" to murdered Syrian colleagues

    ANA/MPA---The Greek Archaeologists Association (SEA) declared October 21 a "Day for the promotion of the work of the Greek Archaeology Service."

    A series of events will take place in the week October 19-25 aiming at public awareness in issues related to the protection and promotion of the cultural heritage.

    The events will highlight the multi-faceted work (excavations, restoration, educational and other) conducted by the Archaeological Service and its importance for the society.

    This year's events entitled "People and Monuments in danger" are dedicated to the memory of Khalid al-Asaad and to the memory of Qassem Abdallh Yehya, who were brutally murdered by the Islamists.

    "Our Syrian colleague Khalid al-Asaad, emeritus director of the Antiquities of Palmyra was a man dedicated to the protections of the antiquities as well as chemist Qassem Abdallh Yehya who was responsible for the antiquities restoration in Syria
