  • [01] PASOK leader makes statement on fires

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou on Thursday attributed responsibilities to the government for the fires raging in the country.

    "Today, the environmental destruction in our country is again tremendous. Huge expanses all over Greece are burning. The heroism of firemen and the contribution of volunteers are really great, but are not enough. The government has enormous responsibilities. It is greatly responsible for the dissolution of state services, of services charged to handle fires, through partisanship and lack of planning," he said in a statement issued by the party's presse office.

    "What is important today is for the government to understand that we are still in mid-summer still having in front of us important threats. That it (the government) must set up the necessary forces, it must coordinate the necessary services and it must, at long last, handle present phenomena and possible future threats, until the end of summer, with a plan and determination," the main opposition leader concluded.
