SYRIZA urges reserve in premature celebrations over EU recovery fund allocation

SYRIZA on Wednesday evening urged reserve in the wake of the European Commission’s announcement of a 750-bln-euro recovery fund for European economies hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and the potential allocation of some 33.4 billion euros to Greece.

A statement by the main opposition party noted that although “there are some positive points” in the plan, “there are many that need further clarification.”

The party added that the “jubilant behavior we see is rash” and noted that there are several steps ahead before the proposal is approved by the next EU Summit, especially in view of opposition to it.
