  • [01] PM: Greek people are actively proving their humanitarianism

  • [01] PM: Greek people are actively proving their humanitarianism

    Prime minister Costas Karamanlis on Tuesday chaired a meeting focussing on appraising and reviewing implementation of the government's measures aimed at abolishing bureaucracy in the provision of aid to the people who suffered losses in the recent wildfires.

    No statements were made after the meeting, which was attended by national economy and finance minister George Alogoskoufis, employment minister Vassilis Magginas, agricultural development minister Evangelos Bassiakos, caretaker interior minister Spyros Flogaitis, and former interior minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos.

    Earlier, Karamanlis visited the Service Centre for the Fire-Stricken set up at the General State Accounting Office, where a four-digit telephone line (1555) is in operation round-the-clock.

    The premier was briefed there by Alogoskoufis, deputy finance minister Petros Doukas, and the Centre's director Panayotis Drosos.

    The Centre has so far received 170,000 phone calls, while the number of citizens calling to seek information on the government's measures for the fire-stricken and how they can help has increased in recent days.

    Immediately afterwards, Karamanlis went to the Hellenic Red Cross' central warehouse, where material aid for the fire-stricken is being collected. The premier said after the visit that the patriotism manifested by the Greeks during the days of the fire crisis "strengthens our sense of optimism for the future", adding that the Greeks were actively proving their humanitarianism, and thanked everyone contributing to this common effort.

    He said that contribution was a necessary condition for a cohesive society, adding that both his visits aimed at stressing the positive messages arising from the difficult situation the country was going through. "In these difficult days, we have witnessed an unprecedented wave of solidarity and humanitarianism," Karamanlis said.
