Tsipras on Defense Pact with France: We Will Not Give Consent to a Mistake

ATHENS — "We will not give consent to a mistake," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras said on Thursday in parliament, during the debate on the ratification of the Greek-French defence agreement.

Justifying his decision to vote against the ratification of the agreement, he said that it constitutes "a new doctrine in the foreign policy of the country that does not take economic capability into account."

According to Tsipras, the new agreement moved away from the country's previous defence doctrine of "being a pillar of stability and security in the region", while he also raised the issue of its cost, accusing Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis "of shopping for frigates as if he were shopping ties" and raising questions about the size "of the final bill".
