As of Friday Europe as a whole, not just Paris and France, is faced with the terrorist absurdity. The attack of the jihadis may have targeted unassuming and defenseless French citizens, but it aimed for the heart of our culture, our democratic conquests, and the way of our life. The war that has begun cannot leave anyone unaffected. We are unfortunately entering a new ear of uncertainty with the hope that it will be a short interlude that will not overthrow the social, cultural and political realities in Europe.
Greece, as a part of Europe and necessary border guard will no remain unaffected from the generalized climate of insecurity and uncertainty. Not just because of the major wave of refugees, but also because of our inherent problems. It is the duty and responsibility of us all, but primarily of the government, to minimize these risks.
It is clear that there are few things that we can do for the refugee problem aside from better organize their registration. We can, however, close our internal fronts and address our obligations with Europe. The endless negotiations and extending the climate of uncertainty in the economy lead nowhere.
The major issue is to restore trust along with the political and financial stability in the country. The individual problems, however much they may affect the life of certain social groups, may be addressed with common sense and trust. We have witnessed this in the past, where the long-term negotiations as a rule result in worse and more painful solutions that those initially on the table.
The agreement with Europe must conclude now so that an end can be put to the bank problems, which undermine the country’s path the recovery. In a world where the uncertainty is returning to Europe there is no reason to add our own insecurity.
