ND spokesman Kikilias on Eldorado Gold’s announcement

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) spokesman Vassilis Kikilias sternly attacked Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Monday speaking to private TV station SKAI, after the Canadian mining company Eldorado Gold announced the suspension of its operations in Greece.

Tsipras’s words “lack political weight and he has never kept any of his promises,” Kikilias said.

Following hard on “Tsipras’ crescendo about investments that would sweep the country,” Kikilias added, Eldorado Gold was now announcing its decision to suspend its operations in the country and pull out of Greece.
