ATHENS — Τhe report of the Committee on the National LGBTQI+ Equality Strategy was received by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Tuesday morning, during a meeting at the Maximos Μansion with the Committee's chairman, Linos-Alexandros Sicilianos, and its members.
Pointing out that in 21st-century Greece "segregation between its citizens is not permissible," the prime minister added that "social exclusion is not only anti-democratic, I believe it is also deeply counterproductive. And that is why our country follows Europe, harmoniously uniting all its forces, integrating what is different in the [common polity]…. Recognising equal rights for all, but also demanding respect and solidarity from all."
According to the prime minister, the plan "has the scientific stamp of the Commission that drafted it, headed by Professor and former President of the European Court of Human Rights, Mr. Sicilianos".
On his part, Sicilianos noted that the report follows "the structure of the corresponding strategy of the European Union for LGBTQI+, 2020 – 2025".
