    [02] Progressive reforms are needed, Deputy Defence Min Toskas tells ANA-MPA

    ANA/MPA---"Reforms with progressive direction are needed," Deputy Defence Minister Nikos Toskas on Thursday said in an interview with ANA-MPA, adding that this translates into "smaller and more effective armed forces with lower cost where appropriate, focused on humans and with certain objectives that have been made understood to everyone in order to address any threats."

    Referring to the relations with Turkey, Toskas noted that "they are neither better nor worse than they used to be" adding that "we are in a very good cooperation with the Foreign ministry and we are trying to deal with any challenges."

    He underlined that the tackling of any challenges is made "in a vigorous way," adding that "we will not let Turkey do whatever it wants in the Aegean Sea or challenge us, despite the problems we have because of the economic crisis."

    Toskas stressed among others that "the issue of consolidating democracy, democratic institutions, democratic perception, loyalty to the parliamentary institutions, is a constant struggle."

    The full interview is available for subscribers at ANA-MPA website.
