Greek Prime Minister's six-point to be examined by the European CommissionEfforts to impose a temporary cap on rising gas prices

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' proposal for a "Six-Point Plan" to impose a temporary cap on rising gas prices, as well as on passing these on to electricity rates, was included in the package of proposals that will be examined and submitted by the European Commission for energy, government sources reported on Friday from the informal summit of the 27 EU leaders in Versailles.

Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in a letter to the President of the European Commission, has already requested action to put a "brake" on the increase in gas prices, proposing a six-point plan of interventions aiming to disconnect geopolitics from the energy crisis, the same sources stressed. In the conclusions of the previous European Council, meanwhile, Mitsotakis also secured the adoption of a provision for a package to absorb fluctuations in energy prices for households and businesses. In addition, he is expected to again emphasize that this is a European-wide problem, which requires a European solution.
