  • [01] DM Evangelos Meimarakis gives interview to Athens newspaper

    Defence Minister Evangelos Meimarakis gave an interview to the Athens newspaper "Imerisia", stressing that "our programme is for elections to be held at the end of the four-year term and from then on, of course, we must be prepared, and we are, for whatever might happen at any moment" and underlining the importance of the election law for achieving stability in the country.

    "The election law must be a tool of stability, it must not function in a chaotic fashion and, of course, it must not create a lack of correlation between the will of the people and the majority in Parliament regarding the first party," he said.

    He further said that "the first party must have a comfortable Parliamentary majority that will allow it to implement the programme for which it was voted into power."

    The minister also referred to the technical issue that appeared with a private company regarding the question of the submarine "Papanikolis", considering it an isolated event and expressing certainty that "in no way does it cast a shadow on relations between the two countries or between the two governments."

    Focusing on relations with Turkey, Meimarakis said "it is premature to speak of a possible reversal in the climate of our relations with Turkey", due to a possible slowdown in relations between Europe and Turkey and expressed the hope that the attitude of the neighbouring country will be fully adjusted to the preconditions necessitated by its European prospects, that also include relations of good neighbourliness with Greece.
