November 6, 2020

ATHENS — Government spokesperson Stelios Petsas spoke about opposition criticism, attacks targeting scientists and possible mistakes the government has made, as well as the decision for economic support of those impacted by the new lockdown, while speaking to SKAI radio on Friday.

"If this is the opposition Mitsotakis has then he will govern for many many years. This is certain because this is not a serious opposition," Petsas said

Asked about possible mistakes in the government's handling of the health crisis, Petsas said: "Naturally,we all make mistakes. Particularly when you govern, to say that you do not make mistakes is your biggest mistake! The prime minister acknowledged on Thursday that there was a process of gradual relaxation and complacency after the summer, which brought increased infections in September and October. Then, suddenly, this tiny ripple, from a wave became almost a tsunami".

Petsas also noted that "society expects responsible behaviour from all the political party leaders, whether they agree with the government or not."


ATHENS - The Greek Foreign Affairs Ministry condemned the "unprecedented violation of national sovereignty by two Turkish fighter jets, which illegally entered our national airspace and approached the city of Alexandroupolis at a distance of only 2.
