Unity Essential for an Effective Response to Turkish Challenges, Katrougalos Says

March 9, 2020

ATHENS – The unity of the Greek people is a prerequisite for an effective response to the challenges and geopolitical threats presented by Turkey, main opposition SYRIZA’s head of foreign affairs George Katrougalos said on Monday, speaking to Athens-Macedonian News Agency radio station “Praktoreio” about the latest developments concerning migration.

“This unity is undermined in the worst possible way when the government spokesperson accuses the main opposition of being Turkey’s ‘Trojan Horse’,” he noted, underlining “that the least the government spokesperson owes the Greek people, not SYRIZA, is an apology for his irresponsible statements.”

Concerning the situation in Evros, Katrougalos estimated that “we are facing a protracted situation” and repeated the need to immediately decongest the Greek islands.


ATHENS - Extremely strong security measures have been taken for the Greek cup final taking place at the OAKA stadium, Citizen Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos said in an interview on Skai television on Monday.
