Meimarakis: We are in a war with terrorists
“We are sending a message to terrorists. All the European, democratic forces will act jointly. We will not allow people to be seduced by extreme, populist voices,” New Democracy leader Evangelos Meimarakis said during a speech in Athens.
Meimarakis added that people will escape the fear that terrorists want to impose.
“As French President Francois Hollande said we are in a war. The Greeks fight like heroes. We are ready to fight for freedom and democracy,” he underlined and urged Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to take a stand on a number of issues before his trip to Turkey.
Referring to government policy, he said that for the first time a few weeks after the elections there is no tranquility, stability and optimism but anxiety and restlessness.
