1/ The summit cements the strong trilateral relations in #EastMed and proves that their alliance in neither reactionary nor temporary.
It is also multi-modal with economic, political, and security aspects.
3/ As @YanniKouts said on @skynewsarabia this is the first time to have electricity link between Europe and Africa.
Also liquifying Cyprus gas will help ease EU dependency on Russian gas…

#Greece: when soc media “strategy” goes stupidly wrong.
Embattled Athens Mayor @KBakoyannis (the PM’s nephew) leaks yet another grandiose plan for the city, after the quasi universal rejection of his last one.
Promoting it on Twitter are dozens of accounts created in Sept/Oct 21,
endlessly tweeting the same tweet(s) w/the hashtag #αναπλαση_πανεπιστημιου, whilst otherwise engaging in troll-like anti-opposition (Syriza) propaganda.

It’s both hilarious and pathetic.
And probably very expensive!
On the serious side of it however, I guess this blatant idiocy will (as many before it) be shrugged off and ignored as if it never happened.

I wonder what would happen if, say, the @MayorofLondon’s comms team had dared use trolls and fake accounts to promote a plan 🤷🏻‍♀️

First #Fire, now water: #Storm hits Greek island #Evia

Dubbed #Athena by #Greece meteorologists, the storm caused "huge damage" to the road network near the coastal villages of Agia Anna & Psaropouli, a regional official said
Dozens of homes have flooded ... torrents burst their banks (even though) the rain only lasted a couple of hours. This is a sign of a very tough winter to come," deputy central #Greece governor for Evia George Kelaiditis told the channel. #Storm

There were no immediate reports of people trapped in homes or cars, he added.

"All my friends are dying.",
I realized as I lay on the floor contemplating how to live to 100.

I am dramatic
and obsessed with longevity.
Dramatically obsessed with #healthspan
not #lifespan.

I'm on a quest to live well for a century.

Here's the problem:
The problem:
I have no idea what health actually means.

Do we eat meat or not?
Does dairy actually cause cancer?
What about mercury in fish?
Is coffee good or bad?

There's too much conflicting information,
too many buzzwords
and @instagram was making it worse.

Frustrated, I decided to look at the places where people DID live to 100.
At least I could begin there. These places are called @BlueZones.

Dan Buettner's work studies the world's longest-lived populations and finds best practices.

Turns out, there are only 5 blue zones:

#Greece is preparing to send a Special Forces contingent to #Mali to join French military forces in carrying out operations against jihadist terrorists.
The #France-#Greece military and defence deal in detail

The Greek-French agreement in Paris today provides for France’s immediate military assistance to Greece and vice versa, in the event of a third country attacking, even if that country is part of their alliances.
The Agreement contains (Article 2) a mutual defense assistance clause in case one of the two countries is attacked on its territory. In this way, Greece is shielded against threats, especially in the Eastern Mediterranean.

#Greek Coast Guard to train #Libyan counterparts as part of expansion of bilateral ties

#Greece wants #Libya to stand on its own two feet and is willing to help in this direction
In joint statements, Fragogiannis called for the withdrawal of foreign troops from Libya and noted that Greece had been the first country to open up a consulate in Benghazi and was the first country to arrive in Libya with a business delegation.
“What stands out in Greek-Libyan relations is that Greece has never harmed Libya nor borne any hostility toward Libya,” Issa said, lauding Greece’s beneficial influence in the Mediterranean and the world.

#Pakistan helping Turkey to achieve nuclear weapons

Turkish President Recep Tayyip #Erdoğan's foreign policy directions concerning India might become costly for #Turkey as his repeated calls for the "Kashmir dispute" to be settled within the UN raises New Delhi's ire…

Under a $40 million deal, India even supplied Armenia with four SWATHI weapon locating radars. New Delhi also condemned Turkey's cross-border offensive against Kurdish-led forces in Syria.

The #FDI Hellenic Navy will be a power and sovereignty asset for #Greece. As a result, the #Hellenic Navy will necessarily be integrated into any planning of inter- allied naval air operations and will have a very high military resilience in combat. Image
#FDI is not only an excellent naval power asset, it is also a valuable anti-missile system capable of fighting both cruise missile and ballistic missile attacks.
The joint use of the Sea Fire radar and her missiles already offers an excellent platform to protect a sensitive site with very little notice and without constraint.

New #turkish provocations - #Greek armed forces are on full alert

The UN #DurbanIV conference is a cesspool of discriminatory, anti-Israel propaganda.

“Zionism=Racism" is a vicious slander against the Jewish state and its supporters.

America and many allies stand proudly with Israel in boycotting this despicable conference.
Thank you @POTUS and @SecBlinken @StateDept for refusing to participate in the anti-Israel #DurbanIV conference.

Ενδιαφέρουσα η συνάντηση Σίσι-Μπένετ, η πρώτη σε επίπεδο ηγεσίας μεταξύ #Egypt και #Israel μέσα σε μια δεκαετία και μετά τα γεγονότα του 2011 αλλά και τα Abraham Accords.

Ακολουθεί thread για το τι σηματοδοτεί για #Greece & #Cyprus
σε πρώτη ανάλυση η συνάντηση έρχεται να υπενθυμίσει την βασική αρχιτεκτονική ασφάλειας στην Μέση Ανατολή η οποία στηρίζεται στις υγιείς διμερείς σχέσεις Καίρου-Τελ Αβίβ μετά το Καμπ Ντέιβιντ οι οποίες σε μια δεκαετία πέρασαν από σημαντικά ορόσημα την περίοδο 2011-2014
το Τελ Αβίβ ξεπέρασε τους ενδοιασμούς Νετανιάχου για μια τέτοια συνάντηση η οποία πάντα δημιουργεί εκατέρωθεν κριτική παρά την ενεργό στήριξη, κυρίως σε οικονομικό επίπεδο, του Μπίμπι προς τον Σίσι την διετία 2014-2016

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Όταν μαθαίνουν από που είμαι, ενθουσιάζονται: έχουν όλοι πάει ή προγραμματίζουν να πάνε στην Αθήνα και σε νησιά ή στην Χαλκιδική! Κάποιες μου είπαν ότι θα ήθελαν να ΖΟΥΝ στην Αθήνα. Ότι η Αθήνα είναι μια υπέροχη πόλη. Όλοι έχουν να πουν κάτι γλυκό για την Ελλάδα.
Είμαστε ένα τεράστιο, αξεπέραστο, διαχρονικό, αγαπητό από όλους όνομα.

Heftige #Waldbrände wüten quer durch den europäischen Kontinent bis hin an den Ural und in den östlichen Mittelmeerraum.
Spanien, Italien, Griechenland, Türkei, Russland - von überall kommen ähnliche Bilder.
In 🇬🇷, 🇹🇷 und 🇮🇹 spricht man von gezielter Brandstiftung.
Zur Erinnerung.
Zunächst waren die Brände besonders in der Türkei heftig und sorgten für Aufmerksamkeit.
Das Land bekam Hilfe aus aller Welt.
Früh wurde dort auch erklärt, dass in den meisten Fällen Brandstiftung die Hauptursache sei
Mehr dazu hier👇
Nun wurde gezielte Brandstiftung auch in #Italien als die Hauptursache für die Feuer erklärt. Viele Brandherde an der italienischen Adria seien gelegt worden. Die vielen gleichzeitigen Brandausbrüche deuten auf geplante menschliche Aktion hin, so die Behörden.

Yesterday, we watched the Prime Minister’s speech, which left us stunned, with a “goodnight and good luck” hanging over us, and a vague reference to the climate crisis, from which we must save our country.

#Greece #GreeceIsBurning #GreeceWildfires
A while later, in a tweet, the leader of the opposition informed us that the climate crisis started 3 years ago and “found them unprepared”.

Gentlemen, stop talking! The #climatecrisis did not start yesterday, nor 3 years ago.

#Greece #GreeceIsBurning #GreeceWildfires
Stop it. During your administrations, in just a few years and while the danger was already widely known, we have seen several abominable acts regarding the climate crisis as well as the biodiversity loss.
