Kammenos to parliament: This is a fully legal agreement, without middlemen

The agreement for the sale of munitions to Saudi Arabia was “a totally legal agreement between states without any middlemen,” Defence Minister and Independent Greeks party leader Panos Kammenos said on Monday, addressing Parliament in a debate regarding the attempted sale.

He said that the opposition had chosen to manufacture a scandal that did not exist.

Kammenos submitted a series of documents that present Vassilis Papadopoulos as Saudi Arabia’s representative. As far as the government was concerned, he added, Papadopoulos represented Saudi Arabia and this had been explained in multiple ways.

“I do not care who represents Saudi Arabia, I care about the law and I act strictly within the law,” said Kammenos.
