PM Tsipras: Solidarity and convergence necessary for a promising EU future

The European Union’s future will be promising only if solidarity and convergence are improved, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in a tweet, commenting on the 4th Summit of Southern European countries that took place in Rome on Wednesday.

“The EU’s future will be promising only if we undertake initiatives on solidarity and economic and social convergence,” Tsipras said.

“The summit of Southern European countries, which was conceived as an idea in Athens, has become an institution contributing to this in substantial ways,” he added.

Besides the Greek premier, the summit was attended by the leaders of Cyprus, France, Italy, Malta, Portugal and Spain.
