  • [01] Pope Francis'meeting with SYRIZA leader Tsipras concluded

    ROME (ANA-MPA/Th. Andreadis-Syggelakis) - Main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras on Thursday met with Pope Francis in the Vatican and discussed the economic crisis, the migration issue and the need for politics to re-inspire people as well as the need for world peace.

    "The Left and the Christian Church have different starting points but meet at the same core values: solidarity, love for the fellow-men, social justice and our wish for world peace," Tsipras said after the meeting.

    SYRIZA leader also described Greece's current situation to the Pope and spoke of a country that keeps sinking deeper in the crisis, which has now become a humanitarian one and pointed out that "we need the support of wider forces across Europe" to terminate this policy.

    "Today I had the opportunity to discuss the economic crisis with Pope Francis…To discuss the need for politics to re-inspire people to collective values that are universal and effective against today's dominant material values of profit and consumption," he said.

    "We discussed the need for peace to return to the world, to terminate war interventions, the need to restore the value of solidarity, to talk on the need for people to be above profits. We asked him to continue fighting against poverty, talking about people's dignity and the structural cause of poverty," he added.
