Athens asked the European Union, today, Tuesday, to suspend the customs union agreement between Brussels and Ankara.

The Greek Foreign Minister, Nikos Dendias, said that the European Union should consider suspending the customs union agreement, which the union concluded with Turkey, according to what AFP reported.

This came in a letter addressed by the Greek Foreign Minister to the Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Oliver Vareli, in response to Turkey's repeated violations of the agreement.

And in August, Turkey sent a ship to explore for gas to the waters claimed by Greece, south of the Greek island of Kastelorizo.

The ship spent nearly a month in the area before withdrawing in early September.

At the conclusion of last week's summit, European Union leaders condemned Turkey's "unilateral actions and provocations" in the Mediterranean.

The bloc warned Ankara that it would consider imposing sanctions at its next summit in December if Turkey did not change its policy.

At a time when the world’s economies are struggling after the knockout hit by the emerging corona virus, a new report revealed that the richest people in China, where the virus first appeared, have grown richer and reached a record of $ 1.5 trillion over the past year.

And in China there are a total of 878 billionaires. And at the beginning of the year, 626 people were in that category in the United States, according to Huron's February list worldwide.

The report cited nearly 2,000 people each with a net worth of more than 2 billion yuan ($ 300 million) in August, or $ 4 trillion in total.

The chief researcher in the Huron report, Robert Hogwerf, commented on the situation by saying that "the world has not seen such wealth, which was gathered in just one year," according to Agence France-Presse.

He added that this year's list shows that China is "moving away from traditional sectors such as manufacturing and real estate, towards a new economy," according to what the British Daily Mail reported.

And the richest man in China, Jack Ma, saw his wealth rise by 45 per cent to 58.8 billion dollars, after the profits made by his e-commerce company "Alibaba" during the crisis.

He was followed by Bonnie Ma ($ 57.4 billion), the owner of Tencent Group, the electronic games and WeChat giant, whose fortune has accumulated 50 percent despite concerns about the prospects for his group's activity in the United States after threats to ban it due to national security concerns.

Jung Shanshan, 66, who is known for his brand of bottled water, Nongfu, made the list for the first time, ranking third with $ 53.7 billion, after an initial public offering of shares in the Hong Kong market in September, according to the report.

Wang Xing, founder of the Meituan food delivery app, quadrupled its fortune, jumping 52 places and ranked 13th on the list, with $ 25 billion, while Richard Liu, founder of online shopping platform JD.com (JD.com), doubled twice to reach 23. $ 5 billion.

Healthcare entrepreneurs also climbed the list on the background of the epidemic, as Jiang Rensheng, founder of vaccine manufacturer Geifi, tripled his fortune to $ 19.9 billion.

The urban unemployment rate fell by 5.4 percent in September, with analysts warning of higher unemployment numbers than officially announced this year.

China's economic recovery comes, with GDP growth of 4.9 percent announced in the latest figures released Monday, amid a recession in most other rich countries, which allowed Chinese companies to seize greater market shares.

It is noteworthy that these figures come after widespread accusations that Beijing has covered up the outbreak of the Corona virus in its early stages, which deprived other countries of the opportunity to prepare.

For its part, China responded angrily to calls for an international investigation, rejecting the accusations.

Everton player Richarlison said that he had received 10,000 messages on the "WhatsApp" application within just five minutes, after Brazilian player Neymar accidentally revealed his number during an online game broadcast live.

The error occurred when the 28-year-old Paris Saint-Germain player appeared in a live broadcast carrying his phone, and Richalison appeared on the list of people he called.

Neymar admitted his mistake to Rachelison, and said with a laugh, "I swear to you that it was not intentional," according to what the Sun newspaper reported.

For his part, Richalison warned against contacting him, saying that he would ban anyone who does that, but this warning did not work, and messages continued to heap on him during the game on the "Twitch" broadcast website, on Sunday.

And Richardson expressed his annoyance at the matter and said sarcastically to Neymar, "In five minutes, I received 10,000 messages. Thank you Neymar."

As for Neymar, he responded to this dilemma by saying, "Now, you have to change your phone number." The reason is that the fans will continue to contact the player with mythical number, no matter what he asks them not to do so.

Last Saturday, Richalison, 23, sparked controversy after receiving a red card for "rough" intervention against Liverpool midfielder Thiago.

The player apologized, at a later time, saying that he had not intended or intended to injure the former player in Bayern Munich.

Today, Tuesday, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko stressed that the Belarusian people will remain the decision-makers in determining the country's approach.

While making decisions related to human resources, Lukashenko said: “It has been said that we will not surrender our country, and this means that we will not surrender it .. and as long as I am president, the people will decide .. Only the people will decide, not the head of state, the chief of the bureau or senior officials. Officials or representatives ... the decision is not up to them. Rather, they will present 10, 20 or 30 issues for the people to decide. Whatever the people's decision, it will be implemented. "

He continued, "If the people suddenly decide that we must join NATO tomorrow, as these protesters suggest, then this is what it will be. And if the people find that our country must be divided and its parts distributed to others, then it will be divided. But if the people decide that we will live in a peaceful, peaceful and calm country." Highly cultured, it means that we will live in such a country. "

Since the authorities announced last August 9, Belarus has been witnessing the victory of Alexander Lukashenko (who has ruled the country since 1994) in the presidential elections with more than 80% of the vote, and there are protests by opposition supporters who reject the official poll results. The protesters are demanding the departure of Lukashenko, the release of political prisoners, and the prosecution of those responsible for using violence against the demonstrators.
