As Members of Parliament of Greek descent around the world are intensifying action aimed at helping Greece΄s economic recovery, Deputy Foreign minister Costas Tsiaras hosted a working dinner for the board of the World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association (WHIA), currently on a visit to Athens.
“We must coordinate our action in the best possible way, particularly at this crucial period for Greece. It is imperative to activate all the forces of ecumenical Hellenism and seek the way in which we can attain the best possible results,” Tsiaras told AMNA.
“This can be confirmed at political level, in an effort to strengthen Greece΄s relations with the countries they (WHIA members) represent and have political activity, in the promotion of issues or sectors in which there can be further cooperation, such as trade and tourism,” he added.
WHIA President and Member of Parliament in the state of Victoria, Australia John Pantazopoulos said, “Wherever we reside, we are Greeks,” adding that, “in such moments we must all do what we can to help Greece, to help the economy of Greece and to strengthen Greece. This is our aim.”
