“We are sending a message to terrorists. All the European, democratic forces will act jointly. We will not allow people to be seduced by extreme, populist voices,” New Democracy leader Evangelos Meimarakis said during a speech in Athens.
Meimarakis added that people will escape the fear that terrorists want to impose.
“As French President Francois Hollande said we are at war. The Greeks fight like heroes. We are ready to fight for freedom and democracy,” he underlined and urged Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to take a stand on a number of issues before his trip to Turkey.
Referring to government policy, he said that for the first time a few weeks after the elections there is no tranquility, stability, and optimism but anxiety and restlessness.
