The secretary of KINAL, Manolis Christodoulakis, who represented the president of KINAL, conveyed a greeting of Fofi Gennimata who could not attend the meeting of the European Socialists in Brussels.
"I convey to you the greeting of President Fofi Gennimata, who is not present today for health reasons, as well as her optimism that with the victory of Olaf Soltz, a new era for Social Democracy in Europe begins. But this must be reflected in new policy initiatives. With more Europe, weight in development, with a strong welfare state, with policies that reduce inequalities "stressed Mr. Christodoulakis and added that" it is time again, as long as we dare, to meet the new challenges. "It is time for action to make austerity policies a thing of the past, to radically revise the Stability Pact, to make the Recovery Fund permanent."
He emphasized the need for European co-ordination, "to address the consequences of rising energy prices, which are fueling inflation and hurting European citizens. "Everyone individually can not, only together we will be effective," said the secretary of KINAL.
He also stressed the need for the European Union itself to address Turkish aggression, which threatens peace and security in the Eastern Mediterranean.
