SYRIZA Spokesperson Attacks Gov’t Over Greek-French Defence Deal

ATHENS — "We will use every means provided by the agreement itself to change it and prevent any possibility of Greek soldiers being involved in clashes with extremist Islamist organisations in the Sahel," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said on Friday in an interview with "Open" TV.

He noted that "this war is not ours" and that "the Sahel is a wider geographical area in Africa, where French forces are clashing with extremist Islamist organisations."

The SYRIZA spokesperson said that "the main problem, which is that the government does not have an active foreign policy, remains," adding that "while ever intensifying Turkish provocativeness has been going on for a long time, the government has not proceeded to make any substantive demand for sanctions against Turkey."
