  • [01] PASOK leader criticises gov't foreign policy

  • [01] PASOK leader criticises gov't foreign policy

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) party leader George Papandreou criticised both the government and Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis over the way with which they handled Tuesday's incident in the Aegean, involving a collision between a Greek and a Turkish fighter plane, while speaking at the inauguration of the party's new local offices in the Athens district of Ilion. Papandreou said that the government believed that with so-called personal relations it could carry out high policy in the Aegean, but it was shown to be wrong in a dramatic way.

    The PASOK party leader further said that the government's nudity in foreign policy appeared, adding that the Karamanlis government is moving without a plan, without initiatives, without strategy and without action and vigilance.

    He also reiterated that the policy of the Karamanlis government will lead to minor and major incidents and great tension and will even result in Greece backing down on basic issues.

    Referring to the missing Greek Air Force pilot, Papandreou said that he acted with heroism and self-sacrifice and all the Greeks owe a great deal to him, as they do to everyone in the armed forces.
