Oikonomou: Greece Will Do Everything Possible to Prevent Gas Supply Problems

February 22, 2022

ATHENS – “We will do everything possible so that we do not face a problem with the gas supply in our country,” government spokesperson Yiannis Oikonomou said on Tuesday in an interview with SKAI TV, following the Council of Foreign Affairs and National Defence (KYSEA) meeting.

Oikonomou explained that “all measures have been taken so as not to endanger the supply chain in our country, all the problems have been weighed,” and stressed that “the country has planned a series of actions so that we are not deprived of natural gas, either with liquefied natural gas (LNG), or by changing and modifying the mix in terms of production. There are no problems on the horizon in terms of the supply chain.”

The government spokesperson insisted that “we must be vigilant, as worrying developments took place last night,” on the Russia-Ukraine front, however, he clarified that “our country is not one of those who will face problems,” from the crisis, which is evolving on the Russian-Ukrainian border.


ATHENS - Almost nine years after being on the brink of being pushed out of the Eurozone and its economy shrinking 25 percent, Greece’s unlikely comeback is continuing, with a 3 percent growth forecast for 2024.
