Tsipras in Moscow this October

All issues of bilateral relations and the broader region were tabled during the meeting, today, between SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras and the president of the Upper Duma of Russia Valentina Matvyenko.


In delineating SYRIZA's positions, Mr. Tsipras expressed the political willingness for broadening Greek-Russian relations on all levels, a position also shared by Ms Matvyenko. The Russian parliamentarian noted, according to sources, that Moscow wants to deepen relations between two sovereign states, based on mutual respect.

Mr. Tsipras noted that SYRIZA looks at privatizations differently than the government, but noted the party looks positively on bilateral collaborations that can contribute to development. Within this framework the leader of SYRIZA noted that his party would not relate bilateral relations with Russia to any positions expressed by third parties, like the EU.

According to media, Mr. Tsipras will be visiting Moscow, in October.
