  • [01] The refugee crisis is manageable, FM Kotzias says

    "The main cause of the refugee crisis is the war, and they tend to forget it and put the blame on us," Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias said in an interview with Skai TV late on Tuesday.

    Regarding Austria's stance, he said that "Austria is also based on other forces that oppose to the German government of Merkel. I would say that it (Austria) plays the 'dirty game' of many countries that would like to destroy Merkel or at least her policy."

    Kotzias reassured that the refugee flows in Greece are manageable, adding that Greece can host up to 150,000 refugees. He also suggested calmness and not panic in addressing the problem.

    "The refugee problem is a complex one," he said and noted that nobody in Europe was ready to accept such a large number of refugees.

    [02] Institutions to meet in Brussels on Greek programme

    The heads of the institutions will meet on Wednesday evening in Brussels to reach common ground on the Greek program and "unblock" the review procedure.

    According to EU sources, the European Commission and the IMF still disagree on the fiscal gap until 2018. Therefore, the EuroWorking Group advised the heads of the representatives to make another effort to achieve convergence before the Eurogroup on March 7 so that the program review starts as soon as possible. Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos will address the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs of the European Parliament, at 16:00 (Athens time).
