For the intention of Greece to participate in a humanitarian corridor by sea for humanitarian aid to Gauze if the ships can reach there “under full protection” spoke to Politico o Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
Speaking to Politico’s Power Play podcastMr Mitsotakis said he would discuss all available options for sending humanitarian aid to Gaza with French President Emmanuel Macron and Arab leaders at the summit, which will be held in Paris on Thursday.
“Because of our geography, if we can deliver humanitarian aid in an organized manner and ensure that that aid reaches those who really need it most, we will be happy to do so. We just had a plane land in Egypt and deliver humanitarian aidand if we can discuss the possibility of a sea corridor, it would require the full protection of all relevant parties to ensure that ships could have safe access to Gaza,” the prime minister said.
At the same time, he added that: “the advantage of a corridor is that you can send much more humanitarian aid in a ship than in a truck. So if the logistics work out and if it’s really convenient to do that, instead of flying aid in and then putting it in trucks, if that’s something that’s feasible and can be done with the utmost safety, I would be very happy to participate in such an initiativeconcluded Mr. Mitsotakis.
