Pitella to be Declared Honorary Citizen of Athens

The president of the S&D Group in the European Parliament, Gianni Pittella, will be declared honorary citizen of Athens on Friday. He will also hold meetings with political leaders.
“We believe Greece has done a lot and now it is the creditors’ turn to take the step in order to close the [program] review without additional measures, while we consider necessary that any deal on collective labor agreements will meet the best European practices,” he told the Athens Macedonian News Agency (ANA).

Pittella reiterated his view that there can be no Europe without Greece, noting that his political group supported the country in its efforts to exit from the social and economic crisis.
