Alexis Tsipras: We need to respect the democratic procedures
Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, on Thursday reassured that the state will meet its obligations towards the Armed Forces after his meeting with Defence Minister and Independent Greeks leader Panos Kammenos.
"We will do everything in our power not to accept cuts that will create new inequalities in the society," the prime minister said and added: "We will decide where and how the cuts will be made."
At the same time, Tsipras reassured that there is no doubt over the country's geopolitical orientation and the government's acts aim to upgrade it.
He stressed the importance of respecting the democratic procedures, without dramatisation, in order to preserve national unity. "The next day we will be all together in the country's efforts to overcome the economic crisis" he said.
On his part, Kammenos thanked the prime minister for the reassurance that whatever proposals by the lenders will not foresee cuts to the Armed Forces.
