In his televised interview today, the Prime Minister, Mr. Alexis Tsipras made statements about the killing of Kostas Katsifas by members of the special forces of the Albanian police. Interestingly, Mr. Tsipras did not comment on implicitly any insulting statements by the Albanian Prime Minister. From the Prime Minister's statements, it is clear that the Greek police are not involved in the investigation. On the contrary, it expects that the outcome of the Albanian side will be without comment in its preparation:
Today is the day of mourning for family and homeland, I do not want to go to a special comment. I understand family mourning, happy mother. Good bitterness and anger. I did not face it. From the first moment, Greece has done what it is supposed to do. We asked for clarification of the case and the participation of a Greek police officer. They promised us that we will give a complete conclusion on the matter.
The attempt by the Prime Minister to reduce the impression is also impressive that the "bone killers" burial is a development of values:
I would say that this very unpleasant event should not lead to a change in our strategy of approaching the neighboring country. For this reason, we forgot what happened on October 28 in the village: in Albania, we buried dead heroes, which happened after 70 years. This development is worth it.
Finally, Mr. Tsipras reiterated the position of the Greek state for the rights of minorities (sic) and stated that the delineation of the exclusive economic zone with Albania will be concluded:
It was an unpleasant event, we were stunned.
The Greek minority must acquire all the rights it enjoys in accordance with international law. For this reason, we continue dialogue.
We will delineate the extraordinary economic zones with Albania.
