Wednesday, 18 January 2017
Greece and Italy are united by the common challenges they face in economy and migration, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told Italian President Sergio Mattarella on Tuesday, welcoming him at Maximos Mansion.
“Today we stand as EU countries, as Eurozone countries, as countries of the European South, before common challenges, the economic crisis and the refugee crisis. Therefore, our cooperation, similarly to the cooperation of all the European countries in the Mediterranean, is a critical factor for the creation of a better Europe,” Tsipras said.
Mattarella is on a two-day visit to Greece and earlier in the day he visited the refugee camp in Eleonas.
