Nine groups submitted a letter of interest in the full ownership of DEPA Infrastructure, a new company to be created by the partial division of the Greek public natural gas company's (DEPA) infrastructure section, by the deadline on Friday.

Currently, DEPA is owned by state sell-off fund TAIPED (65 pct) and Hellenic Petroleum (35 pct). Following the partial division, the two shareholders will own the corresponding stakes in DEPA Infrastrucutre, and act as its joint sellers.

In the phase that concluded on Friday, Greek officials said the following companies expressed interest, in alphabetical order:

- Antin Infrastructure Partners SAS (private capital investments focused on infrastructure investments)
- China Resources Gas (Hong Kong) Investment Limited (the top natural gas group of companies in China, focused on gas distribution)
- EP Investment Advisors (energy group in Central Europe, producer, transporter and distributor of natural gas)
- Firts State Investments (European Diversified Infrastructure Fund II, based in Australia; also participating in phase II in the sale of a 30 pct stake in the Athens International Airport share capital)
- Isquared Capital Advisors (UK) LLP (international independent investment manager focused on energy, utilities, telecoms and transport)
- Italgas SpA (Italy's largest natural gas distributor, third largest grid manager in Europe)
- KKR (KKR Global Infrastructure Investors III LP; international investors in infrastructures, inter alia)
- Maqouarie (MEIF 6 DI Holdings; one of the top 50 asset managers globally)
- Joint venture Sino-CEE Fund & Shanghai Dazhong Public Utilities (Group) Co., Ltd. (private capital company related to the 'One Belt, One Road' initiative, connecting China to the rest of the world)  

"The great interest in the tender for DEPA Infrastructure's privatization is yet another proof that the government is on the right track and creates conditions for the attraction of capital and investments in the country," Environment and Energy Minister Kostis Hatzidakis said.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

      The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.         On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.    On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.        When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.       The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
