  • [01] EU must assume its responsibilities towards humanity, President Pavlopoulos says

    "The European Union must assume its responsibilities towards humanity and treat refugees with solidarity and love," Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Thursday said in a meeting with the Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos, at the Jerusalem Patriarchate.

    "The messages sent by the Jerusalem Patriarchate, through the Christian teachings and the coexistence, are significant for the EU that is at a critical crossroads," Pavlopoulos noted and added: "Only the Christian teachings can lead the actions of those who hold the fate of mankind in their hands."

    [02] The projects to be financed by the Juncker package will soon be announced, Economy Min Stathakis says

    "The projects that will be financed by the 'Juncker package' will soon be announced," Economy Minister George Stathakis on Thursday said in Parliament.

    Stathakis responded to a question raised by main opposition New Democracy deputy Costis Hatzidakis and Democratic Alliance deputy Vassilis Kegeroglou.

    "Greece has selected 42 projects of 5.6 billion euros to be financed by the Juncker package. They are 42 projects, of which 18 is purely private, and others that will be carried out with the collaboration of the private and the public sector," Stathakis noted and pointed out that the 'Juncker package' does not provide direct funding but it is a "mechanism of providing assistance to private projects" by offering guarantees and low interest rates.

    [03] The government has a strong mandate to conclude the agreement, gov't spokeswoman says

    "The government has a recently renewed and strong mandate to conclude the agreement and create a stable and safe framework for the economy and the society," government spokeswoman Olga Gerovassili on Thursday said in statements to Real.gr.

    "The only ones interested in early elections are those who want to avert the legislation of rules that will boost transparency and public interest," she added.
