SYRIZA: Gov’t ‘quietly moving away’ from established position on Palestinian issue

The government is “quietly moving away from the established positions of Greek foreign policy” on the Palestinian issue, SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance department on International and European Affairs charged on Tuesday.

When Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis paid an official visit to Israel on Monday, his second after June 16, 2020, Syriza said, “it was the second time he did not meet with the president of Palestine – not only that, but he never even mentioned the Palestinian issue in his official statements.”

It also charged that the premier did not comment about the Israeli government’s plan to annex sections of the occupied West Bank, a move condemned by the EU member states, it said.

“It is becoming more obvious that the government of Mr. Mitsotakis is quietly moving away from the established positions of Greek foreign policy,” Syriza dded.

The main opposition party said it consistently supported “the solution of two countries coexisting in safety, with the full recognition of the State of Palestine with the 1967 borders and East Jerusalem as its capital.”
