  • [01] Tsipras outlines SYRIZA's strategy at Brookings Institution

    AMNA -- "Is there anything to fear by the left wing in Greece? In what way are we radical?," visiting leader of the main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) Alexis Tsipras asked an audience at Brookings Institution, Washington, on Tuesday. And he answered: "Scaremongers will tell you that our party, if it comes to government, will scrap the loan agreement with the European Union and the IMF, will lead the country out of the euro zone, will interrupt Greece's ties with the civilized West, and that Greece will become a new North Korea."

    Tsipras' speech was preceded by introductory remarks by Brookings Institution managing director William Antholis, while the discussion with questions from the audience was coordinated by Brookings' economic analyst Domenico Lombardi.

Today, I hear that some of your politicians warn the U.S. government to listen to them if you do not want to be...Greece. One thing is clear: our countries can be very different in size and structure. We also know that there are shadows and problems of the past that we want to overcome. But there are strong ties which in a globalized landscape are becoming stronger. Because our own destruction affects you as well."

    "Tahoma","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";color:#0F1419; Presenting SYRIZA's positions for the future, Tsipras stressed that his party wanted to establish a mutually beneficial dialogue with progressive thinkers in the U.S. "We have to prove that humanity has become wiser by the destruction that has been through."amna

    "Tahoma","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";color:#0F1419; SYRIZA, he stressed, has always been and will always remain a European party. "I hope to convince you that I'm not as dangerous as some are trying to say.., Let me say this clearly: SYRIZA will keep Greece in the euro zone."
