SYRIZA’s Charitsis Refers to Gap in Govt’s Strategy in Greek-Turkish Relations

ATHENS — SYRIZA spokesperson Alexis Charitsis on Tuesday referred to 'a strategy gap' of Mitsotakis' government in the Greek-Turkish relations speaking to radio SKAI.

"We are experiencing weird, difficult and worrying days and Turkey stubbornly refuses to abide by the international rules and proceeds to illegal actions in order to form a Greece's sovereignty dispute framework and to drag the country to a negotiation on its conditions and under the threat of violence. At the same time, the government's strategy has a gap which leads to very negative developments" he stated.

Unfortunately, our allies are washing their hands and the foreign interventions fill us with concern because are following the rationale of equal distances, Charitsis underlined.

Finally, he sternly attacked the government on its stance in the issue of the coronavirus saying that the scientists' recommendations were not heard and the government rushed to open schools, churches, the tourism and the economic activities and now we are paying for it. "Unfortunately, even now, we are experiencing grotesque situations as the different protocols and checks on visitors from land and air and an overall lack of strategy in the economy and the protection of the public health".


ATHENS - "You will have Greek government's unequivocal support in your actions that fully understands that duty to one of the older centres of our nation in the Aegean" stated Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis addressing an online event for the New Year of the association of Ιmvrians (Greeks from the island of Imvros that belongs to Turkey).
