PM Mitsotakis Αddresses American Summit on Safeguarding Democracy (Video)

ATHENS – On Wednesday, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis participated in the 2nd Summit for Democracy 2023 via remote connection, which was co-hosted by the United States State Department.

After being invited by US President Joe Biden, the Greek premier addressed the “Leader-level Plenary on Democracy Delivering Economic Growth & Shared Prosperity” along with other prime ministers and presidents.

During his speech, the Greek prime minister emphasized that the threat to democratic values is more acute now than at any time over the last three decades.

As a result, he stated that democratic powers must work to promote political, economic, and individual rights, strengthen democratic institutions and the rule of law, defend accountability, fight corruption, and strive for inclusivity.

Mitsotakis also noted that Greece today is one of only three countries in Europe that have integrated the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals into their annual planning. He also stressed that his government will continue to pursue digitization reforms and e-governance, fostering significant direct participation for all civil society, but also giving voice to both young and old.

This year’s Summit for Democracy is co-hosted by the United States, Costa Rica, Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, and Zambia.
