Greece has asked to attend a summit in Berlin which will discuss a path to peace in Libya, government spokesman Stelios Petsas revealed on Tuesday.

The news came a regular press briefing, when Petsas was asked about Greece’s “absence” from any diplomatic initiatives concerning the crisis in Libya.

“Nobody can say that Greece is absent, but instead it is at the center of developments. We want to be involved in any initiative in the search for a political solution,” he told journalists and announced the request.

Reuters reported that the summit will coincide with a one-day visit to Berlin by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and will be held on January 19.

The same report said that “Erdogan’s presence is seen as essential to the success of any conference on Libya, since Ankara’s decision to deploy military advisers and possibly troops there has made it a major player in the country’s long-running civil war.”

The summit was announced by German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday, who said that the United Nations would lead talks if a meeting were to take place in Berlin.

Greek police break up protest at Chios hotspot

Greek police were called to break up a protest at a migrant hotspot on the island of Chios in the eastern Aegean on Tuesday.

Migrants at the Vial facility were protesting the slow pace with which Greece has been processing asylum claims.

Some protesters lit a garbage container on fire and then threw stones at firemen who tried to douse the blaze.

Police arrested 18 protesters aged between 16 and 41 years old.

As arrivals rise, Cyprus intercepts boat with 101 on board

As arrivals rise, Cyprus intercepts boat with 101 on board

Cyprus intercepted a vessel carrying 101 Syrians off its coast on Tuesday, police said, one of the largest arrivals of refugees from the neighboring country in recent months.

The Syrians were loaded at sea onto a coastguard vessel and from there led to a harbour in the south-east of the island.

"There were minors among those on the boat, which appears to have set off from Turkey," a police spokeswoman added.

The island, the closest European Union member state to the Middle East, has seen a gradual uptick in arrivals of undocumented migrants and refugees in the past 18 months as other routes have become more difficult to cross.

Many are refugees from Syria, but there has also been an increase in arrivals of people fleeing upheaval in Cameroon via the unrecognized breakaway state in north Cyprus. [Reuters]
