Gianni Pittella in Athens for meetings with Tsipras and centre-left party leaders

The president of the S&D Group in the European Parliament, Gianni Pittella, is travelling to Athens today for several meetings with the Greek prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, as well as the government, the leaders of the centre-left parties and the presidency of the republic. The discussions will focus on the management of the refugee crisis and the economic and social situation in Greece.

Ahead of all these meetings, Gianni Pittella will express the solidarity of the European Socialists and Democrats with the Greek people, underlining that the refugee crisis is a European problem which needs a European solution and not a national one.
