PASOK chief criticizes Tsipras in wake of US visit

TAGS: Politics

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s official visit to the United States fell short of upgrading strategic ties between Athens and Washington, PASOK chief Fofi Gennimata has said, while criticizing a reported 2.4 billion dollar deal to upgrade Greece’s fleet of F-16 fighter jets.

“For yet another time, the prime minister said much, and promised even more, but he is returning empty-handed. He received cost-free niceties and signed to a 2.4 billion bill,” she said.
