Tzanakopoulos: We are satisfied with and proud of everything we have achieved

The (name) agreement is a political victory as it resolves a matter that has been burdening the country for over 30 years, Greek government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said in a interview with the national ERT.

The government, he said, is satisfied with and proud of everything it has achieved for resolving the matter.

He expressed belief that after a certain period of time those opposing the agreement would realize that it ‘is a necessary political and diplomatic compromise’, which although a compromise fully protects the interests of Greece, MIA reports from Athens.
