EP Vice president Papadimoulis: The opportunity to close second review should not be missed today

The opportunity to close the second programme review on Thursday’s Eurogroup meeting should not be missed, because Europe will get into a period of elections in many countries, the Vice President of the European Parliament Dimitris Papadimoulis said in statements to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA).

“It is in nobody’s interest Greece, which is a pylon of stability in southeastern Europe and bears a huge part of the burden of the refugees’ crisis, to experience again the crisis of the summer 2015,” he added.

He also accused PASOK and Potami parties that they adopt a nihilistic rhetoric against SYRIZA.

Moreover, he said that, as Vice President, will send immediately a letter to the new President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani, asking him to make amends for the “unhistorical” statements he made about FYROM, a few months before assuming the office of the President.
