Exercises by US and Greek troops in Greece will increase, and the US presence in Greece will grow. "MDCA is the bedrock of our defense cooperation," Blinken said in a statement, referring to what is essentially a bilateral defense agreement. Elliott PageUnder MDCA, exercises between American and Greek troops in Greece will increase in number and duration, promoting interoperability between the two NATO allies in a tense corner of Europe. Turkey is also increasingly antagonistic toward other NATO members, particularly France, which recently signed a defense agreement with Greece. Although the MDCA is not directed against any particular country, "it does provide certain comfort for Greece in its disputes with Turkey," Novo told Insider.

REUTERS/Yorgos Karahalis/File PhotoATHENS, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Piraeus Bank (BOPr.AT), one of Greece's four biggest lenders, reported a smaller loss in the third quarter than the previous three months, as expected, as provisions for bad loans decreased. The bank reported a net loss from continued operations of 635 million euros ($721 million), down from 2.045 billion euros in the second quarter, as loan impairment provisions slumped to 811 million euros from 2.28 billion. Analyst forecasts had ranged from a loss of 630 million euros to 800 million. NPE reduction in the first nine months of the year amounted to 16 billion euros, bringing our NPE ratio down to 16%," Chief Executive Christos Megalou said. He said the bank was getting closer to delivering a return on tangible equity above 5%, along with a single-digit NPE ratio "in the forthcoming period".

Merkel herself conducted fundamental research in quantum chemistry in East Germany before entering politics after German reunification in 1990. South Korea and Taiwan go to show that competitive chip production in the 3- or 2-nanometer range, for example, is essentially impossible without state subsidies," she said. But she also lamented the failure of German companies to capitalise on an outstanding research base. "But in the long term it cannot be the state that drives new developments," the European Union's longest-serving leader said. It was, however, at the leading edge of research in areas such as quantum physics, climate research, physics, chemistry and robotics, she said.

ATHENS — A Greek trial for two dozen aid workers, some of them foreigners, is set to open on Thursday, charging them with espionage over their role in helping migrants who arrived in the country between 2016 and 2018. The case will be heard in a court on Lesbos, the Greek island that was at the forefront of the European migration crisis that began in 2015. The trial is opening at a time when Greece’s conservative government is toughening its stance on migration and on groups working with migrants, aligning itself with a hardening climate in Europe, which is grappling with a new migrant crisis at the Poland-Belarus border. The Greek government has said it will not allow a repeat of the 2015-2016 crisis which saw thousands of migrants streaming across the Aegean Sea daily, overwhelming Greece’s rescue services. Rattled by fears of a new wave of refugees from Afghanistan, Greece has tightened the policing of its borders.

REUTERS/Louiza VradiATHENS, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Greek public health sector workers protested in Athens over pay and conditions on Monday as hospitals struggled with a new surge in COVID-19 cases and authorities considered further restrictions. A decision by the government to suspend unvaccinated health sector workers has increased staff shortages, they said. Greece made vaccinations mandatory for nursing home staff in July and for healthcare workers in September. Public and private sector employees also now need to take tests twice a week to enter their workplace.

“We are on track to achieve receipts of more than 10 billion euros,” he added. After Greece lifted most of its pandemic-related restrictions before its key summer tourist season, a growing number of foreign visitors poured into the country this summer. “We have not counted final takings yet,” Kikilias said, adding that September, October and November were also busy months. Greece has been banking on tourism to drive a recovery after a recession shrunk the economy by 9% last year. Last week, the EU Commission revised its economic forecasts for Greece, seeing the country’s economic output growing at a faster pace of 7.1% this year.

I returned home this weekend to Washington with three convictions:First, what the world is experiencing is more energy transition than energy revolution. Second, we're all going to hear the term "climate change adaptation" more because "climate change mitigation" is going to take a lot longer than the purists would wish. The difference is that mitigation tackles the root causes of climate change while adaptation manages its negative effects. The Atlantic Council has taken on the myriad ways of mitigating climate change and slowing the rise of global temperatures through the cutting-edge work of its Global Energy Center. At the same time, the Council's Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center has been a world leader on questions of climate adaptation.

Vice-President of the European Central Bank (ECB) Luis de Guindos gives a statement during the second day of the Informal Meeting of EU Ministers for Economics and Financial Affairs in Berlin, Germany September 12, 2020. With annual inflation at a 13-year high of 4.1%, more than twice the ECB's target, the bank is facing pressure to tighten policy. Markets have priced in a 10 basis-point deposit rate hike next year, a move policymakers have spent the last week pushing back on. Holzmann, one of the most conservative members of the rate-setting Governing Council, said that a rate hike in 2022 could even be counterproductive and that based on the bank's current guidance such a move is unlikely. Such an impact is significant as it could reduce the need for stimulus by the European Central Bank, which has pulled all the stops in recent years to lift anaemic price growth.

Republican Mike Carey and Democrat Allison Russo are vying for a seat in Ohio's 15th District. Russo, the Democratic nominee, is a public health advocate and Democratic state lawmaker representing parts of the Columbus suburbs in Ohio's House of Representatives. Carey is poised to easily defeat Russo in the safely-Republican district that backed Trump over President Joe Biden by 14 percentage points — 56% to 42% — in 2020. Carey's likely election also continues a growing trend in the House Republican caucus of Trump-style candidates replacing establishment-aligned Republican incumbents. Also on Tuesday, another special election is taking place a few hours north in Ohio's safely-Democratic Cleveland-based 11th Congressional District, vacated by now-HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge.

REUTERS/Louiza VradiBEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi urged the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Wednesday to resume financing support to cash-strapped Afghanistan for reconstruction. The IMF said on Tuesday that Afghanistan’s economy was set to contract up to 30% this year, possibly fuelling a refugee crisis. He renewed a call for the United States and other Western countries to lift unilateral sanctions on Afghanistan and for the World Health Organization to provide more vaccines and medical supplies to help Afghanistan fight COVID-19. China has said it will send $30 million worth of emergency humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan.

At the core of his vision lies what he calls “European strategic autonomy.” This, he argues, should lead the European Union to something like a middle course between two great powers of the 21st century, the United States and China, bound to America through values and long friendship, but engaging rather than confronting China. is to become an independent power,” Bruno Le Maire, the finance minister who is close to Mr. Macron, said in an interview this month. “Independent from the United States, able to defend its own interests, whether the economic interest or the strategic interests, which means to be able to build more capacities on defense.”The problem for France is that not every European nation agrees. The European Union is also a long way from having anything resembling a united military. Vice President Kamala Harris will come to Paris next month.

ATHENS, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Macquarie Asset Management is in for the long haul with its planned investment in Greek power grid operator HEDNO, a senior executive at the investment manager told Reuters, pointing to the opportunity presented by the electrification of the Greek economy. Public Power Corp (PPC), Greece’s biggest power utility, said last week it had agreed to sell 49% of fully-owned power grid operator HEDNO to Australia-based Macquarie AM in a deal which valued the stake at 2.1 billion euros, including debt. HEDNO operates Greece’s electricity backbone, a 242,000 km long grid which brings power to about 7 million households and businesses across Greece, a country which has committed to replacing coal-fired power by 2025. “The electrification of the Greek economy represents a major opportunity,” Martin Bradley, a senior managing director at Macquarie Asset Management, part of Macquarie Group, told Reuters. “We hope our investment in HEDNO is the first of many in Greece”.

Trump, whose endorsement helped Carey win a crowded primary, carried the district by 14 points in 2020. She flipped her legislative district, once a reliable Republican ring around Columbus, by 14 points in 2018. As well as Trump did in the Ohio 15th, the Trump-weary Republican whose departure opened the seat did even better. As such, the special election Nov. 2 could provide clues on how to run with or against Trump in next year’s midterm elections.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel speaks to the media as she arrives for an EU leaders summit in Brussels, Belgium, October 21, 2021. The doyenne of European politics has sat at the conference table with four French presidents, five British prime ministers and eight Italian premiers since her first EU summit in December 2005. Back then, as today with Poland challenging the supremacy of EU law, there was a row blazing between members of the bloc. A skilled practitioner of corridor diplomacy, Merkel proved adept over the years at finding vital compromises to defuse EU disputes. German political parties have been in talks since last month's election to form a ruling coalition and if they don't succeed by mid-December, the 67-year-old Merkel will be back in Brussels for her 108th EU summit.
