Greece says Russia still interested in Greek railways, port
Russia is still interested in buying Greek railways and the country’s second-biggest port OLTH, Greece’s infrastructure minister said on Friday afer meeting Russia’s deputy prime minister, Arkady Dvorkovich, who heads Russian Railways.
Russian Railways and its Greek partner GEK-Terna were shortlisted in the sale of Greek railways (TRAINOSE) and its rolling stock operator (ROSCO), along with the Thessaloniki Port since 2013.
The privatisations were halted after a new leftist government was elected in January but were kickstarted again as part of a third bailout the Greece clinched with international lenders in July.
