ND calls SYRIZA to recognize the significance of the Obama visit in Athens

New Democracy said the country will welcome U.S. President Barack Obama to Athens next week and called on SYRIZA to also recognize the significance of the visit, after governing sources said it would be wrong to underestimate the importance of Obama’s last official trip abroad as president.

“We welcome the President of the United States, Barack Obama, to Greece and we’d like to welcome SYRIZA to the world of reason, but with such statements it’s impossible,” the party said.
