  • [01] Commissioner Moscovici welcomes Greek vote on prior actions

    European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Pierre Moscovici welcomed the Greek parliament's approval of the prior actions bill in a tweet on Thursday evening , saying it is "another step forward" for the country

    "Tonight's vote in Athens [is] another step forward for Greece. We will assess with other institutions and report to EWG tomorrow," Moscovici tweeted.

    [02] Refugee plight on Lesvos 'not a Greek problem,' EU Commissioner Andriukaitis says

    "The things I saw in Skala Sykamnias are not a Greek problem. They are my personal problem as a European citizen, as a human being, as a politician of our common homeland of Europe," European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Vytenis Andriukaitis said in statements to the ANA-MPA on Thursday, while visiting the island of Lesvos in the northeast Aegean

    The Commissioner stressed the need for "urgent solutions now" to address the disastrous plight of refugees arriving on the island and to help Greece cope with the crisis, while praising the volunteers and island residents for their efforts to assist the desperate refugees as they alighted.

    "The state that I saw here cannot exist in any part of the European Union. It offends us as Europe, it offends us as human beings," he added after visiting the coast where most of the illegal refugees come ashore after making the crossing from Turkey.
