Mitsotakis: The Reforesting of All Burnt Areas a Top Priority

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed his gratitude and thanks to the personnel of the Fire Brigade, the Hellenic Coast Guard, the Hellenic Police and to the volunteers who altogether battle the numerous fires across the country, speaking on Saturday after his briefing at the Fire Brigade's Athens HQ.

"The situation is slightly better than what it was on Friday," he said, and continued to say that efforts must continue "with great intensity to contain all fires and prevent any further rekindling."

The Greek premier also expressed "deep sorrow for what has happened," and said he wanted to "assure anew all those afflicted by the fires that their recovery will be my first political priority."

Mitsotakis also stressed that the reforesting of all burned areas will come soon and will be official, and that upgrades and improvements regarding reforestation policy and the design of anti-flood and anti-erosion planning are also upcoming.


ATHENS, Greece — Greece’s defense minister announced Thursday that he will travel to neighboring Turkey next week as part of an effort to ease tension between the two NATO members, which have long-standing and often volatile disputes.
