We Were Prepared for Both Possibilities, Government Sources Say on U.S. Election Result

maximou“The Greek government had been prepared for both possibilities given the failure of the pollster companies in recent years,” a government source said on Wednesday on the outcome of the U.S. elections. The same source said that Obama’s visit is of significant importance for the second programme review and the debt issue as well as for the fact that the U.S. foreign policy gives emphasis on Greece and so far this does not seem to change. “Of course there will be changes in the U.S .interior affairs and the international system, which we are closely monitoring,” the same source added and concluded: “However, there is some concern over the respect of human rights and the rights of the minorities.” On his part, Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias congratulated the newly elected U.S. President Donald Trump. “The Greek government has systemic relations with both parties, the Democratic and the Republican. We had discussions with the Trump team last September on issues of the region on the sidelines of the UN general assembly. The Greek government and any Greek government always had good relations with the U.S. and the American people. We continue to have good political relations. We are waiting to welcome U.S. President Barack Obama to Greece,” he said adding that Obama is very popular in Greece. “President Obama’s meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the Greek government will be fruitful, positive and productive” Kotzias underlined.
