Talks between the Piraeus Port Authority (OLP) and the Piraeus-Cosco Containers Terminal to resolve whatever discrepancies contained in the award contract of pier II and II to the Chinese side will be reached "in an amicable manner" within 10 to 15 days, OLP president and managing director George Anomeritis said Tuesday.

"If a solution is not found then we shall move to the next stage, which is arbitration, with a Greek citizen serving as arbitrator," Anomeritis stressed.

He also referred to an international tender for a transport and container hub in the Thriassio industrial district, west of Piraeus.
