  • [01] Cyprus is not alone, Greek Defence minister says

    ANA/MPA---Cyprus is not alone, National Defence Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos said on Wednesday, assuring that "the motherland stands by its side."

    In statements after the military parade in Nicosia in the context of the celebration for the 54th anniversary since the declaration of independence of the Cyprus Republic, Avramopoulos said the parade sent out a message of courage and determination.

    He also pointed out that Greece supports President Nicos Anastasiades' efforts for a viable solution to the Cyprus problem so that Greek-Cypriots and Turkish-Cypriots can be members of the wide European family.

    Cyprus' defence system, he noted, is at the service of the international legality, while Cyprus has a stabilization role in the region.

    [02] MEP Costas Chrysogonos: A SYRIZA government is clearly seen on the horizon

    A SYRIZA government is very clearly seen on the horizon, SYRIZA MEP Professor Costas Chrysogonos said in an interview with ANA-MPA WebTV on Wednesday.

    Chrysogonos estimated that there would be early elections in March. "I have the impression that, barring any unforeseen circumstances, the mandatory parliamentary majority for the election of the President of Republic will not be reached, and we will go to early national elections and SYRIZA will certainly be the first party. So, a government with SYRIZA as a backbone is a very strong possibility and everyone should consider and organise their actions based on this fact," he said.

    SYRIZA MEP also said that "the current government does not appear willing to claim anything, it seems totally trapped, self-trapped I would say, in the so-called success story which is obviously false... Today, Greece is not in the forefront of Europe's attention, but for the wrong reasons I am afraid. The government with the alleged success story has disorientated and has turned the spotlight away from the humanitarian crisis that the Greeks are experiencing ... The Greek government must shout it loud. Unless we change our stance, we will not get anything more than what the troika gives us today and which obviously does not meet the needs of the Greek society."

    Referring to the European Union, Chrysogonos estimated that the "EU is today before crossroads. Either it will become more democratic with more solidarity among member states and societies as well as more social justice and redistribution or I am afraid the other option is to return to national states, I don't know exactly in what form and whether this will mean the dissolution of the European Union or only of the eurozone or a combination of both."
