PM Tsipras meets with Europarliament president Schulz
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said that he had a productive and frank dialogue with European parliament president Martin Schulz during their joint statements after their meeting on Wednesday.
Tsipras said the discussions were focused on the continuous tragedy in the Aegean that makes even more urgent the need for the awakening and the establishment of a joint cooperation strategy and policy in order to confront the ongoing tragedy of the refugees. Greece, he said is assuming responsibilities that exceed its powers, particularly in a period of economic crisis. It is mandatory the refugees issue to be seen under the founding principles and values of the European Union, of solidarity and responsibility sharing, noted Tsipras.
Moreover, the Greek prime minister announced that in the second half of November he will have the opportunity, on behalf of the EU, to discuss with the Turkish government issues regarding EU-Turkey’s relations on the refugees.
