PM Mitsotakis: The Evros Fence Will Be Finished With or Without EU Funds

ATHENS – The leader of New Democracy and Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, visited the Municipality of Pallini on Thursday, where he spoke with residents and shopkeepers in the central square of Gerakas.

“I will be in Evros tomorrow and will have the opportunity to sign the extension of the fence project that protected Evros and our homeland from illegal migration invasions,” he said, adding that the project will be completed with or without EU funds.

The prime minister underlined that despite the major crises the country faced, his government has been consistent in fulfilling all their pre-election commitments.

He added that he promised four years ago that the economy would return to a dynamic growth trajectory. “Today, Greece is the champion of growth in Europe with a 6% growth rate in 2022,” he said.

He urged citizens to be careful when they vote on May 21, “if we do not want to go through the tax raid that burdened the middle class from 2015 to 2019.”
