SYRIZA leader Stefanos Kasselakis visits Palestine to advocate for state recognition


Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Stefanos Kasselakis is visiting Palestine from Sunday until Monday, May 26-27.

During his visit, Kasselakis will visit Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Ramallah, where he will meet members of the Palestinian Authority’s cabinet, representatives of the PLO, and the Patriarch of Jerusalem, Theophilos III.

Earlier, he met with Palestinian Minister of Tourism Hani Al-Hayek. During their meeting, Kasselakis stated that they will pressure the Greek government to follow Spain’s lead in recognising the state of Palestine.

Additionally, the SYRIZA leader said they will also pressure Europe, in light of the upcoming European elections, as SYRIZA is a member of the largest left-wing group in the European Parliament.

Kasselakis is accompanied by SYRIZA-PA Secretary Rania Svigou, the party’s head of defense issues, Evangelos Apostolakis, its head for foreign affairs, Rena Dourou, and his diplomatic advisor Dimitrios Papageorgiou.
