Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Friday the two-day Summit of EU leaders on migration in Brussels produced “positive decisions for the country”.

Speaking shortly after the end of the meetings, he said: “In a difficult field and within negative European correlations Greece succeeds in using opportunities and defending both its rights, as well as broader human values, such as solidarity, democracy and social cohesion.”

Commenting on the year that is ending, Tsipras said it was “a very tough year for Europe” and a year of “great crises and upheavals.” He also expressed his hope that the New Year will bring major moves towards a more social and progressive direction, so that Europe may rediscover its orientation and its founding values.”
