PM Tsipras: Our borders are safe
“Our borders are safe,” stated Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Friday after attending the final phase of the military exercise “Parmenion” at Evros and said that he is “totally satisfied and impressed by the alertness of the Greek Army.”
“Our country is not in war,” he said, however, Greece in the middle of a destabilisation triangle.
He also referred to the refugees issue. “The refugee crisis is a major problem for all Europe and for all European societies, each one individually. This is a problem which is more intense in Greece because of geography and proximity to areas of conflict. Thousands of families are taking the road of exile to escape the war. We have experienced similar situations and that is why we are in solidarity with those people. And we demand from our neighbors to do the same. The refugee issue, the pain and suffering of the people cannot be used to serve the national interests of any country,” he added.
