Xydakis: Athens has no reason to be afraid of a Brexit
The Alternate Minister of European Affairs Nikos Xydakis argued that Greece has no reason to fear the consequences of a possible ‘Brexit’ in an interview for EurActiv.
“Athens has no particular reason to be afraid. However, it is concerned about the future of the EU integration process” he argued, expressing his support for the ‘Bremain’ campaign.
Mr. Xydakis further explained that “a British exit from the EU would adversely affect British and Irish people on an economic level and possibly strengthen the centrifugal tendencies in Scotland” and pointed out that “Europe’s pylon in the Atlantic Ocean will be weakened. Europe without Britain is unimaginable, considering the historical balance of power”.
