Alexis Tsipras meets with Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo to give support ahead of election


Alexis Tsipras travelled to Paris on Wednesday to give his support to mayor Anne Hidalgo ahead of the March 15 election in France.

During his stay in the French capital, the president of SYRIZA visited a popular bookstore in the 20th district, the ‘Le Merle Moqueur’, which hosts writers from all over the world. 

According to Koumoundourou sources, “Alexis Tsipras asked to be told about Greek writers who hosted and chatted about Nikos Kazantzakis, with Alexis Tsipras referring to the author’s famous phrase ‘I hope nothing, I am not afraid’.”

Alexis Tsipras also reconciled with members of the bookstore, referencing the recent loss of Thanos Mikroutsikos, a great musician who’s poetry was read all over the world. 

The president of SYRIZA also journeyed to Sorbonne to meet with the French historian and Dean of Paris University, Gilles Pecout. The two men had the opportunity to discuss Greece-France co-operation in education, as well as research and innovation, while agreeing on the importance of supporting public universities.
