  • [01] Papandreou addresses EU Socialist Party council

    Madrid (ANA-MPA/V. Mourtis) -- The global financial crisis can comprise a large opportunity for Europe to highlight its social face, main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou said during a discussion of a meeting of the European Socialist Party's Council focusing on the party's manifesto in Madrid on Monday.

    Papandreou stressed that the agenda was now common at local, European and global level, and consequently "we must give strength to our countries in order to give strength to the world".

    The effort, Papandreou said, must be founded on four values. First of all, on enhancing democracy and individual rights in order to confront the global development and the problems it creates. Second, on social justice, with increased resources for health and eduation, and increased care for youth and women. Third, emphasis on green development, as the Left agenda today was a green agenda. Fourth, on Europe playing an important role for altering the correlation of power worldwide, but also in the member countries of the European bodies.

    Papandreou further said that the election of Barack Obama as the next US president created the conditions so that, "all together, we will try to find solutions and advance US-Europe cooperation for the promotion of peace".
