  • [01] Government, institutions still have many differences, says Economy minister

    The government and the heads of the institutions are approaching each other but there is still great distance between them on some issues, Economy Minister Giorgos Stathakis said after a meeting with the mission chiefs at the Hilton in central Athens.

    "There's an approach by the two sides but we still have a great distance to cover with the representatives of the institutions. There's a long road ahead for many issues, mainly for the loans of the small and medium-sized businesses and consumer loans," he said, but noted that there's a base for an approach on protecting the main residence from selling it to funds, without giving more details.

    The issues that remain open, according to information, will be discussed anew next Thursday.

    [02] Alternate Migration Min Mouzalas estimates the refugee problem will not be solved in the next EU summit

    Greek Alternate Minister for Migration Affairs Yiannis Mouzalas in an interview with Skai TV on Tuesday night estimated that the refugee issue will not be solved in the upcoming EU summit.

    "I will be happy if they set the basis for the solution of the problem (in the summit) and this has to do with the immediate relocation of refugees," Mouzalas underlined.

    Regarding Idomeni, he explained that the lack of state hosting facilities at the borders was both a political solution and a legal need. "We want to send the message that whoever goes to Idomeni, he goes with his own responsibility."

    Mouzalas also stressed that the refugees at Idomeni are unwilling to be transferred because they hope that the borders will open and estimated that the situation will have been improved in a month.

    [03] Angelina Jolie's visit to Lesvos cancelled

    The arrival of American actor Angelina Jolie to Lesvos has been cancelled, according to a UNHCR's statement.

    The Ministry for Migration Policy on Wednesday confirmed the news.

    Jolie, who acts as UNHCR's Goodwill Ambassador, was supposed to visit the refugee camps in Moria and Kara Tepe.

    [04] "Ariadni" ferry with 600 refugees aboard docked at Piraeus port on Wednesday

    "Ariadni" ferry with 600 refugees and migrants from Chios and Mytilene islands of the Northern Aegean Sea docked at the port of Piraeus early on Thursday morning. More specifically, the ferry carried 114 persons from Chios and another 486 refugees and migrants were embarked on Mytilene.

    According to the counting of the portuary authorities of Piraeus the number of the refugees and migrants hosted in the passengers stations and the stonewall warehouse at the port raised to 3,430 persons.
