Achtsioglou: Mitsotakis’ “Desperate Communication Tricks”, Do Not Help Economy

ATHENS — "With desperate communication tricks, neither the economy is recovering nor is society's attention distracted," SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance MP responsible for financial issues Effie Achtsioglou said on Thursday, following Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' announcements.

In particular, in a statement, she noted that "a panicked Mr. Mitsotakis this morning gave another address about so-called 'new' financial relief measures, apparently trying to change the agenda of the widespread unrest and violence that he has provoked in Greek society, hoping to cover up the general outcry that followed his recent address regarding the events in Nea Smyrni and seeking to once again disclaim his responsibilities at the critical moment. We leave it up to the citizens to judge this move in itself."


ATHENS - Turkish criticism of Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou for calling the killings of Pontic Greeks more than 100 years ago a genocide were a further attempt to hide the truth of what happened, Greece's Foreign Ministry said.
