Tsipras: No country can prosper if Europe does not change
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras informed the preparatory meeting of the Socialist Party about the initiative of the Greek government – which was also accepted in the minutes of the EU Summit on Brexit – to include a statement according to which the guidelines, the Brexit negotiations and their results do not constitute any legal or political precedent for another act within the EU and its relations with third countries.
In his intervention, the Greek prime minister referred to the presidential elections in France saying that if Le Pen achieves a 40 pct in the second round of the elections, this would be of concern. This result would reflect the discontent of the citizens to Europe, he stated and stressed that “no country in Europe can prosper if Europe does not change.”
Tsipras expressed his concern about the developments in the Western Balkans, especially in Skopje. At the same time, he stressed that Greece is a pillar of stability in the region and a key axis for stabilization in any Balkan country.
