PM Tsipras: Τhe stance of FYROM police is a great shame for European civilization

Asked about Sunday’s clashes in Idomeni, the prime minister said they constitute a “double provocation” because they were encouraged by some “solidarity volunteers”, representatives of NGOs, some of whom are foreign nationals and don’t live in the country.

The second provocation, he said, is the stance of FYROM authorities, who responded with teargas and rubber bullets against people who were clearly unarmed, which constitutes a great shame for European civilization and for the countries who want to become part of this civilization. “I expect European authorities, international organizations and the UNCHR to say something on what happened yesterday,” he added.
