“The international humanitarian conference for the civilians of Gaza, organised at the initiative of French President Emmanuel Macron and attended by the prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, is underway in Paris,” government spokesperson Pavlos Marinakis said during a press briefing on Thursday.

“The prime minister has emphasised Greece’s position many times, supporting Israel’s right to self-defence and condemning the terrorist Hamas,” he added, concerning the prime minister’s interview on the Politico podcast. “The prime minister pointed out that, as the days pass, we have expressed increased concern about the tragedy of innocent civilians and the horrifying images from Gaza and I believe that while we recognise Israel’s right to defend itself, how it does so matters.”

Marinakis also referred to Mitsotakis’ meeting with the Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority, Mohammad Ibrahim Shtayye, during which the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip was discussed. “The prime minister reiterated his growing concern over civilian casualties and underlined the need for humanitarian pauses to ensure a steady flow of humanitarian aid to Gaza.”

He also said that “the prime minister reiterated Greece’s readiness to assist with humanitarian aid and said that Greece is in contact with the Republic of Cyprus and the partners involved regarding the possibility of a humanitarian corridor by sea for the transfer of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip” .

He also repeated that the prime minister emphasised that Hamas is a terrorist organisation, that it does not represent the Palestinian people and that the only legal representative of the Palestinian people is the Palestinian Authority, stressing “Greece’s long-standing support for a two-state solution.”
