  • [01] "There is no room for retreats in international law issues"

    Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, who inaugurated the Greek Institute of Thracian Research in Alexandroupolis, sent a message to Turkey that Greece seeks good relations, but in matters concerning our national laws and the application of international law, it is not possible to have retreats, setbacks, or negotiations.

    "I want to remind to Turkey that not only do we seek good relations, but we are also sending the message that in these turbulent times, Greece is the door and the window to the West and the EU, and we are ready to keep that door and window open. We proved that because we were the first ones in the puzzled West, and perhaps for several hours, that supported the democratic legitimacy in the neighboring Turkey during the recent coup attempt. But as far as it concerns our national laws and the application of international law, it is not possible to have retreats, setbacks, or negotiations, " Pavlopoulos underlined.

    Referring to the Lausanne Treaty, he said that it is "valid and non-negotiable."

    [02] New Democracy accuses Tsipras of lies and audacity

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) in an announcement on Saturday accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of lies and audacity.

    "He is the politician who deceived the Greek people and particularly the middle class and the weakest ones," it said. "He is responsible for the third and unnecessary memorandum which has serious consequences on the economy and the society," it added and continued: "And now instead of taking advantage of New Democracy's responsible stance with its positive proposals for the reduction of primary surpluses and the promotion of national targets at all levels, it is trying to make black white."

    In such critical times, it continues to show incompetence, inefficiency, irresponsibility and be hostage of his party interests, it stated. "If it cannot avoid a fourth memorandum, it should eventually leave. It should stop transferring his own responsibilities to the main opposition. The only service has to offer in the country is to resign."
