|ATHENS Nike Air VaporMax 97 Hombre Baratas , May 14 (Xinhua) -- Greece relaunched this week the Piraeus Port Authority (PPA) privatization process which had stalled for months, Greek government spokesman Gavriil Sakellaridis said on Thursday.
The Greek official stressed that final decisions on the privatization plan were linked to ongoing negotiations with international lenders on a new deal regarding the resolution of the Greek debt crisis.
"The Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF) rephrased the terms of the tender concerning PPA's privatization, taken into account the interests of the Greek state, employees and the city of Piraeus and trying to avoid a cancellation of the process which could raise demands by participants," Sakellaridis told a press briefing in Athens on Thursday.
The Greek official confirmed earlier media reports that the HRADF has altered the terms of the tender and that the issue was discussed during a cabinet meeting on Wednesday evening www.airvapormax97.es , but noted that no final decisions on the sale of PPA were made.
"The entire process is linked with the progress in negotiations with lenders and the final deal (on the Greek debt crisis). The privatization is part of the comprehensive agreement ... We will see the matter when the time is mature," the Greek official stressed.
Sakellaridis acknowledged that the Leftist government which took office after January's general elections has shifted from its pre-election stance on the issue.
"We are not trying to hide the fact that this is a concession. The significant element in this framework is to place terms that do not lead to a sellout. We do not follow this rationale," the Greek official underlined.
According to HRADF sources the main contenders for the privatization project were formally informed with a letter on Wednesday evening that Greece intends to sell a 51 percent stake of PPA shares in coming months instead of 67 percent as initially planned and the other 16 percent gradually over a four year course after completing certain works in the port's development and expansion.
The decision was made after marathon consultations with the government and unionists who oppose the privatization, Greek media, such as "Kathimerini" (Daily) newspaper reported.
According to the media reports the interested sides were given a deadline of September to submit their final bidding offers. Under the new timetable the privatization should wrap up in the first trimester of 2016.
BEIJING Nike Vapormax 97 Baratas España , Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- A senior official of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region defended a local ban on burqas Thursday, saying burqas are not folk costumes nor Muslim clothes but are "garments of extremism."
Shewket Imin, an official with the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Committee of the Communist Party of China, made the remarks at a press conference on Thursday, at which a white paper on Xinjiang's decades of development was also released.
Local legislature in Xinjiang approved a regulation banning wearing of burqas Nike Air Vapormax 97 Baratas , a garment that covers women's faces.
Shewket said there are problems involving people using burqas to hide their identity. In one instance men wearing women's burqas abducted children.
"By covering people's eyes, burqas represent some kind of backwardness. We Uygur people don't like to see women wear such kind of clothes either," said Shewket, himself a Uygur, adding that many women need to work and keep contact with society.
"We have a clear-cut position on the freedom of religious beliefs: defending legal activities while resolutely curbing extremism and illegal ones Nike Vapormax 97 Baratas ," he said.
The official noted that the government has a series of measures to safeguard people's freedom of religious belief in Xinjiang, including sending thousands of Islam followers to Saudi Arabia Arabia and providing clerical personnel with allowances.
According to the white paper, released ahead of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the autonomous region, there are altogether 24,400 mosques with 28 Off-White x Nike Vapormax Negras Blancas Baratas ,600 clerical personnel in Xinjiang.
