SYRIZA: Mitsotakis Calls for Dialogue after First Turning Greek Islands into a War Zone

February 27, 2020

ATHENS – Main opposition Syriza party on Wednesday criticized Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for the clashes that occurred on Lesvos and Chios against the soon-to-be-built refugee detention facilities, saying that “he is calling for dialogue now, after first turning the islands into a war zone,” in reference to inviting local authorities to Maximos Mansion on Thursday.

The party announcement called on Mitsotakis “to permanently abandon the dangerous choice of violence and authoritarianism, before his obsession leads to casualties.”

Syriza also said that the prime minister “is solely responsible for this chaos” and stressed that “the only realistic solution is dialogue, decongestion of the islands and fair sharing of the burdens of the migration crisis with local authorities, in a spirit of solidarity.”


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis addressing the new Cabinet at a meeting held in the Maximos Mansion on Saturday, said that he chose this first meeting after the elections to coincide with the government reshuffle "in order to send an overall message of dynamic restart because June 9 was a landmark in our up to date course but also a new start for the next three years of our term" .
