Kotzia's statements ignited fires in the Greek political scene

The controversy that broke out between Andros Kyprianou and Nikos Kotzias , after the latter's reports to “F”, about the request of the General Secretary of AKEL, accompanied by George Katrougalos, to Alexis Tsipras, for his removal from his position, is taking on dimensions. Foreign Minister, a scenario that, according to the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece, took place during the negotiations in Geneva (January 2017).

After the intervention of the former Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, who denied Nikos Kotzias, followed the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Greece during the Conference in Geneva, George Katrougalos, who, in his intervention on twitter, he on the side of Andros Kyprianou, for Nikos Kotzias to answer later, quoting a photo.

“I fully confirm the statement of the General Secretary of AKEL, A. Kyprianou that I never had a meeting with him before I became Minister of Foreign Affairs, in Athens, in Brussels or anywhere else,” said George Katrougalos on twitter.

Answer by Nikos Kotzias via “PRATTO”

The PRATTO Movement, led by Nikos Kotzias, responded to the report of Giorgos Katrougalos in an intense manner, even attaching a relevant photo from the Geneva Conference, where the two officials were present .

Kotzia's statements ignited fires in the Greek political scene

“G. Katrougalos assures that he never met before 2019 with the General Secretary of AKEL, whom he claims to have met only then. He assures us that he did not meet him in London, the Bahamas, Athens and Brussels and elsewhere. He does not talk about Geneva, which is the issue at stake. Were he and A. Kyprianou not present at the Geneva conference on the Cyprus issue? “Doesn't he remember well?” Said Nikos Kotzias. He even referred to statements made by Mr. Katrougalos in Geneva on the issue, indicating that “some should be taken seriously.”

It is noted that Mr. Kotzias claims, as he states in his book, that Andros Kyprianou made this blow to Alexis Tsipras “accompanied by Katrougalos”, before even “the end of the negotiations in Geneva”. He specifically mentioned that George Katrougalos was in Geneva as Deputy Foreign Minister of Greece and there, together with Kalpadakis, he met with Andros Kyprianou.

These are the statements of Nikos Kotzias, in “F”, who lit fires:

“The secretary general of AKEL avoids like the devil the incense to refute the essence, that, that is, he asked Tsipras for my removal from the position of Greek Foreign Minister. It bothered him that I raised the issue of guarantees and possession. It was rumored in Geneva that my policy did not reflect the Greek government. Why did he do it? He knows.

In the book, and in fact in a footnote – and in it by the way – I mention that he made this blow to Tsipras “accompanied by Katrougalos” before even “the end of the negotiations in Geneva”. He claims that he had never seen Katrougalos before 2019 when he became a minister, which is obviously not true. Katrougalos was in Geneva as Greek Deputy Foreign Minister and met with Kalpadakis there.

The main false argument of the secretary general of AKEL, in order to avoid the truth, is that he did not go to Athens after Geneva as soon as I write. But nowhere in the book is it said that he went to Athens to have a conversation. He sets up false information in order to “defeat” it himself. The book clearly notes that this happened “before the end of the negotiations in Geneva”. “There are people who are bothered by the truth, but not by provocative actions.”
