Gas Crisis did not Affect Greece

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   Attending an extraordinary EU energy meeting in Brussels on January 12, which marked the resumption of gas supplies towards the EU, the newly appointed Development Minister Kostas Hadjidakis stressed that “ever since the beginning of the crisis, Greece has been actively engaged in the effort of the EU to overcome the implications of the crisis, while two of the EU observers sent on the spot are Greek”. The minister also pointed out that the Greece was probably the sole EU country not to have been affected by the situation, utilising its reserves in liquified natural gas together with a bilateral agreement with Algeria which provides for immediate procurement of natural gas if needed.
