Mitsotakis: “We have pre-purchased twice the number of vaccines than we need”
“2021 will not be an election year,” clarified Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in an interview with ANT1 and Nikos Hatzinikolaou.
“We have a stock of trust. The government enjoys a comfortable parliamentary majority, “he added, adding that his intention is for the government to run out of 4 years.
What he said about vaccinations, tourism and Tsipras criticism
“We have pre-purchased twice the number of vaccines than we need,” he said, referring to the demand for vaccines in our country, adding that “we have enough vaccines.” “From February, we will create 4 large vaccination centers in Athens and Thessaloniki,” he said.
As he went on to say, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in the first 3 months of the year we will have 4 million doses of coronavirus vaccines, vaccinating up to 2 million of our fellow citizens by March.
Our committee never suggested closing Thessaloniki before the holidays of October 26th and 28th. Everything humanly possible was done to support the NSS in Northern Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis noted in his interview.
Tsipras’ proposal lacks any seriousness to get the panties and make the vaccines in Greece. “What I see is not opposition, but disappointment,” he said.
Do not have illusions that some countries or companies will ask for documents related to vaccination, said Kyriakos Mitsotakis regarding his current initiative on vaccination certificate, which will be discussed at EU level.
“I’m optimistic about tourism this summer,” he said Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
We are considering all possibilities, in no case will we violate the European agreement on the purchase of vaccines. “We can not have an ala carte Europe,” he said.
I believe that there will be no delays in the disbursement of funds from the European Recovery Fund. We have one of the best plans among the EU member states, noted Kyriakos Mitsotakis in view of the finalization of the plan, which will be submitted to the European Commission.
Vaccines are safe and effective, Kyriakos Mitsotakis also stressed in the interview.
Economy, click away, church and Greek-Turkish
I know how difficult the situation is in the real economy. The State was, is and will be next to companies and employees. They acknowledge that the government moved quickly and with duration, Kyriakos Mitsotakis pointed out in his interview with ANT1.
We have given a lot of money and I tell you that the refundable deposit will continue as long as there is this need.
Obviously I’m very interested in the regime we were in at Christmas, to make it work click away, or allow citizens to enter the stores. At the moment, the epidemiological data are much better, noted Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
With my own decision, I closed the first two weeks of economic activity, in order to prevent a rapid increase in cases, said Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
In Epiphany there was a disagreement between the government and Church, but then the Church showed compliance with the measures, he underlined.
There will be a new Bridge program that will allow knowledgeable borrowers to finance much of their loans, the prime minister said, stressing that “we want to help trade unblock.”
“I have asked the Minister of Health to contact all the parties so that there is not the slightest doubt that the criteria will be completely objective in terms of the distribution of advertising,” he said, referring to the media.
Our government has sought to resume exploratory contacts by setting a specific framework: No activity within Hellenic EEZ and the subject of discussion is the delimitation of maritime zones in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean. It is better to discuss within a specific context than not to discuss, noted Kyriakos Mitsotakis on ANT1.
No Greek government will discuss gray areas or demilitarization of our islands. I want to find a framework for the long – term resolution of our dispute with Turkey. It is also not in Turkey’s interest to continue its provocation. I hope that 2021 will be a better year for Greek-Turkish relations.
Finally, regarding the Novartis case, he noted: “On February 22, 2018, I said that we should claim compensation from Novartis. What I said then is true now. The country will ask for what it can claim from Novartis. there was a scandal of doctor funding and prescribing. The political scandal lies in the targeting of 10 politicians by SYRIZA, there were no politicians involved “.
