  • [01] Guyana President in Greece

    The President of Guyana, Bharrat Jagdeo, currently on an official visit to Greece, met with President Karolos Papoulias for talks on bilateral relations and international issues on Thursday.

    Papoulias hosted a dinner in honour of the Guyana president and expressed certainty in his address that the visit will contribute to the further strengthening of friendly relations between the two countries.

    Jagdeo said on his part that "in the ranks of the European Union the small countries are those that can understand the challenges being faced by the small and developing ones around the world."

    [02] Tsipras: Gov't a 'Pontius Pilate'

    Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) party leader Alexis Tsipras, speaking on Thursday during a protest rally in western Greece against the use of the port of Astakos for the transfer of munitions from the United States to Israel, said that "we shall not allow even an inch of land to be used to facilitate the transfer of war supplies to Israel.

    "The pride of the Greek people is ruffled when weapons are transported from ports in the country," Tsipras said.

    Tsipras accused the Greek government of "washing its hands" and of "behaving like a Pontius Pilate" and called on it to take initiatives, stressing that "it must forget all thoughts of facilitating Israel and the United States and recall the Greek ambassador from Israel, otherwise its complicity will be grave."
