SYRIZA: Premier Should “Send Tourism Minister Home after Conflicting Directives”

ATHENS – Following the "unprecedented chaos" in tourism, the prime minister should "send Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis home," SYRIZA said on Tuesday, after what it described as conflicting directives on the country's reopening to tourism after the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak in Greece.

"One day the Tourism Ministry comes up with a list of 29 countries for which the Greek borders are open, and the very next day it uploads a Foreign Affairs Ministry list with different countries, including even flight origin airports in high-contagion countries, according to the EU Safety Aviation Agency, also forgetting in both cases its initial commitment to virus testing," the main opposition said.

The discrepancies, it said, "humiliate our country abroad" and "create problems in Greece's diplomatic relations with friendly countries."


ATHENS - Talks between the foreign affairs ministries of Greece and Türkiye were held over approximately twenty days and in absolute secrecy, before the two respective ministers' announcements came from Brussels on Monday, noted Greek diplomatic sources.
