Mitsotakis: "Greece is on the right side of history"

“Greece is on the right side of history,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in his opening remarks at an online cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

According to him, the main message of Tuesday’s parliamentary debate was that the country is determined, together with its allies in EUuphold international law and support a country facing an invasion.

“Loyal to international law and determined, together with our allies, with the European family, not to allow the borders of Europe to change and the world to experience violence and zones of influence again,” he said.

The prime minister added that freedom and democracy should not become hostages of authoritarianism, and this message was supported by all Greeks.

Mitsotakis noted that these events confirm [правильный] the political choice of the government that serves the national interest, as well as the need to manage the economic consequences of the unfolding crisis [за этот выбор была обещана финансовая помощь].

“We have to cope with them, and we will cope with them,” he stressed and referred to the offer of Greece for European support aimed at compensating for rising prices.

The prime minister also noted the continuation of the state policy to ease the burden of taxes and contributions.

He stressed the danger of revisionism for Greece and Cyprus, noting that the policy of equal distances ultimately legitimizes crime and amounts to complicity.

“The policy is to propose, as we have done systematically and methodically, the strengthening of national defense and the creation of strong alliances. The policy is to make European strategic autonomy a priority in response to the challenging new geopolitical conditions of the future,” he said.

He also noted that the war in Ukraine, in addition to testing international stability and legitimacy, the principles of democracy against the principles of autocracy, was also a test of which sides really express progress and which ones regress.
