Pangalos says Qataris still interested in Elliniko plot

Following a visit to Doha, Deputy Prime Minister Theodoros Pangalos said on Friday that Qatar remains interested in the utilization of the site of Athens?s former airport at Elliniko (photo) and will participate in the international tender, although they would have preferred a simpler procedure on the business level.

However, Doha understands the constitutional and European Union obstacles in Greece, Pangalos noted.

Qatar has also expressed an interest in the utilization of the state-owned Afandou area on Rhodes as well as in all of Public Power Corporation activities.
