toxic patriotism | comment | ekathimerini.com
the lynch mob attack on thessaloniki mayor yiannis boutaris during a gathering to commemorate the pontic genocide – the systematic killing of ethnic greeks by the turks during world war i – and while the national anthem was playing in the background, should give us pause.on saturday, boutaris became a victim of the toxic climate that is being cultivated in northern greece and in the city of thessaloniki in particular over certain specific national disputes that remain unsettled and other events.the thessaloniki mayor is the kind of politician – if we can really call him that – who never hesitates to express his opinions boldly and to go against the grain for what he believes to be the right thing. it is this that put him in the crosshairs of sundry self-proclaimed defenders of the nation, some of which found an opportunity on saturday to lash out. that they were protected by the organizers and also by the police is a matter that needs to be seriously addressed.let’s be honest: boutaris has rubbed certain people the wrong way because of the many windows he has opened for his city onto the world. he has transformed the northern port from a “hedgehog” – a city that was always on the defensive because of the complexes cultivated by various political leaders regarding (what else?) its greekness – into an attractive tourism destination for nationalities that were shut out, viewed practically as hostile, until he took over.everybody is aware of this and those who d...

athens and skopje would ideally agree on one of the names proposed by nimetz, gov’t says | news
athens said monday it welcomed skopje’s acceptance of a greek demand that any name agreed between the two countries be “erga omnes,” i.e. to be used domestically and internationally, adding however that the two sides would ideally agree on one of the names proposed by un mediator matthew nimetz.speaking on real fm, government spokesman dimitris tzanakopoulos said that “positive steps” have been made in talks between greece and the former yugoslav republic of macedonia (fyrom), but “there is still a long way to go.”over the weekend, greek party leaders rejected “republic of ilinden macedonia” as a candidate name for fyrom. the name was reportedly put forward by fyrom prime minister zoran zaev to his greek counterpart alexis tsipras during talks last week in sofia.in comments made earlier monday, greece’s migration policy minister dimitris vitsas said that the specific proposal “is not so much on the [negotiating] table.”

greek current account deficit shrinks in march, tourism revenues rise | business
greece's current account deficit shrank in march compared to the same month a year earlier on the back of a lower trade gap which more than offset a decrease in the services balance surplus, the bank of greece said on monday.central bank data showed the deficit at 0.956 billion euros ($1.12 billion) from a deficit of 1.412 billion euros in march 2017. tourism revenues rose to 252 million euros from 197 million in the same month a year earlier.`the drop in the balance of goods deficit is attributable to an improvement in the oil balance, as oil exports increased by 11.9 percent or by 3.1 percent at constant prices, while the corresponding imports fell by 21.2 percent,` the bank of greece said.in the first quarter of 2018, greece's current account showed a deficit of 2.8 billion euros, up by 53 million year-on-year, mainly due to a decline in the services surplus.by contrast, the trade balance and the primary income account improved, the central bank said.in 2017 as a whole, greece's current account deficit reached 1.5 billion euros, down by 418 million year-on-year.
