PM Mitsotakis at informal Porto EU Summit: 'Greece a protagonist in building a social Europe'

Greece will play a leading role in the effort to build a social Europe, said Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis during the informal European Union Summit in Portugal, on Saturday.

Speaking on the second and final day of the summit, the Greek premier added that, in this context, Greece has offered the Portuguese EU presidency its undivided support towards making the European social agenda a top priority.

Mitsotakis also raised the need for a swift implementation of the so-called 'green' vaccination certificate, so that citizens can start travelling to other countries without further delay.

In his address, the premier also stood explicitly in favor of the coronavirus vaccine patents waiver, as he has been, he said, supporting the issue since April and May 2020, "in view of minimizing the gap between developed and developing countries."

The Greek Prime Minister also reiterated his support to the Cypriot government for a bizonal, bicommunal federation in Cyprus, a solution compatible with the European acquis and Cyprus' status as an EU member country, he underlined.
