Peloni:Greek Govt Trying to Get the Country Out of the Crisis

ATHENS — "Greece has a government that is trying, with the support of the people, to get the country out of an unprecedented health crisis with the fewest possible losses," government spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni said in a statement in response to main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras' post.

She pointed out: "Unfortunately, there is an opposition that invests in intensity and the aggravation of the political and social climate. Mr. Tsipras did it with Dimitris Koufodinas. He is doing the same with the events in Nea Smyrni Square – which are already being investigated."

Citizens clashed with police forces on Sunday in the Athens suburb of Nea Smyrni when a team of police officers went to the square to perform checks on the application of measures to prevent and limit the spread of the coronavirus.
