Greece is ready to contribute by any means to alleviate the suffering of the civilians of Gaza, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis emphasized during his intervention at the International Humanitarian Conference, organized in Paris by French President Emmanuel Macron.
Mr. Mitsotakis mentioned that Greece and Cyprus are directly adjacent to the region and reminded that our country has already sent aid from the air to be channeled into the burning Gaza.
Then referring to the project for a sea route for humanitarian aid, the Greek Prime Minister emphasized Greece’s willingness to contribute, underlining the difficulties but also the conditions that must be met.
“We have discussed extensively with Cyprus the idea of a sea corridor and we really fully support what President Christodoulidis mentioned about aid to Gaza. I think the most difficult thing is to find an unloading place in Gaza and to ensure the safety of the route that this ship will take,” noted the prime minister.
