ATHENS — "I believe that an issue that has hurt the country is now closed. The political part, perhaps the most important one, closed in the elections of July 2019 when Golden Dawn did not enter Parliament," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Monday in an interview with 'Ta Nea' newspaper.
He noted: "However, it is also a decision that I believe has implications inside and outside Greece. I would say it was a courageous decision made by the court."
Regarding the coronavirus pandemic and the decisions taken by the government, the prime minister pointed out: "If there was a magic way to stay in our homes without huge financial damage, it would obviously be the surest way to combat the coronavirus. But everyone understands that we should avoid a full lockdown at all costs."
