President of the Socialists and Democrats in the europarliament Gianni Pitella made a plea to Greece’s lenders to start the negotiations on the debt relief, after his meeting on Wednesday in Brussels with PASOK party leader Fofi Gennimata.
“We will not allow a punishing approach against the Greek people. The vulptures in Europe must understand that the Greeks have already contributed a lot. It is time for Europe to support the Greek people’s efforts and to begin the discussion on the relief of the Greek debt. All member states should understand that Greece can’t be left alone in dealing with the refugees crisis,” said Pitella and Gennimata in joint statements after their meeting.
