PM on Samothrace: Borderland Greece and border islands our top priorityThe PM called on island residents to observe the prevention measures for Covid-19

Caring for borderland Greece, especially border islands, is the government's top priority, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on the island of Samothrace, northern Greece, on Saturday, ANA reports.

Most of the island's outstanding issues have been resolved in the last 15 months, his government's term, he said. "We are a government of works, not words," he underlined. A major outstanding issue includes the restoration of damage incurred during the great floods of 2017, as he pointed out.

The PM called on island residents to observe the prevention measures for Covid-19. As he told local representatives of agencies, "It is particularly important on small islands, which are by their nature protected by the dispersion of the novel coronavirus." Greece is doing much better than some other European countries, but it is not out of danger yet.
