ATHENS (AP) — European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has congratulated Kyriakos Mitsotakis on his victory in Sunday’s Greek general election while cautioning that the highly indebted country still had a tough economic task ahead.

In a letter to the new prime minister, Juncker praised the Greek people for what they had to endure during its recent financial crisis which almost saw the country ejected from the euro currency area four years ago.

“A lot has been achieved,” Juncker said. “But a lot remains to be done.”

Juncker told Mitsotakis he had “full confidence in your personal capacity and the capacity of the Greek people to open a new, brighter chapter in the history of your country.”


  1. Greece has a lot to do .. according to the leader of the European New Soviet bloc..but run by U.S white supremacist , not peasant Russian proleteriate!

    This says it all…the elections in Greece, were totally a scam show , since, we already know who are the leaders of Greece, Junker, Menendez and PYatt, and Merkel!

    Fresh over .inciting possible Nuclear war and obliteration of 81 million Iranians …and who knows what other horrors for the world by failing to live up to the condition of an International agreement by the most powerful nations on earth…which prohibits Iran from developing uranium grade material for Nuclear weapon by now obeying the new Terrorist threat to the world .the United States and Israel who have collaborated to commit crimes against peace and humanity to wage war again on a country who has continued for one year to comply with all conditions of the agreement and which has been certified by the International Atomic Energy commission every month!

    Junker..should be arrested for crimes against peace…for failing to meet his obligation to end economic sanctions and warfare on not only the people of Iran, but Venezuela ..which is designed to starve the people of these countries to surrender their leaders and sovereignty to the U.S and Israel…like Syria!

    Junker..also is working hard in his economic and political terrorism beyond Greece, by exposing his terrorism of the people of Syria and breaking of international laws

  2. Last week,.the British white supremacist colonialist broke international laws by seizing and pirating an Oli tanker of Iran allegedly going to the people of syria,who are unable to use their own oil since, it is one of the remaining parts of Syria occupied by U.S proxy Kurdish terrorist rebels and Al Queda.all acknowledged terrorist forces under the protection of war crimes bombing by israel from Lebanon air space against forces fighting them!

    The scourge of Cyprus..the British, who are leaving the EU claimed that they were enforcing .and get this ..EU economic warfare and sanctions preventing oil deliveries to the country of Syria and it people which deprives them of many important basic necessities like electricity and transportation etc etc.

    For you brain dead readers from Greece and America,.let me help you , while EU/Nato countries led by the U.S and Greece. are allegedly fighting terrorist in Syria , which we now know is a lie , they are waging economic warfare to assist the terrorist in taking over Syria!

    Therefore, Russia and China.should support the “War on Terrorism” ..just bomb the hell out of these Terrorist EU countries.including Greece..who is part of the European bloc run by Merkel, Junker , and Pyatt!.

    When you put on You tube to watch Pyatt and Victoria Nuland organize the terrorist act of overthrowing the government of the Ukraine and the Ukrainian Orthodox church with the EU, and add this little secret of leave the EU!

  3. Juncker and the EU found themselves another puppet in Mitsotakis. I predict Mitsotakis will not fully finish his four year term without another snap election.
