ATHENS — Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata on Thursday made a call for joint action to bring about the release of vaccine patents, in a post on social media. "President Biden's intervention opens a prospect for the release of vaccine patents. All of us who have said this and believe it, have a debt to help," she said.

She also stressed that "in our country, we should agree on the joint action required, so that the European Union can actively participate in the effort because this goal will not be an easy task," while pledging to raise the issue within the Party of European Socialists.
