for a critical Summit for the refugee.
All the information, both from the capital of Belgium, and from the government camp converge in that the Summit will be the most critical… until the next, as the venture is characterized as “ambitious” and will find it difficult to reach a final agreement with Turkey, due to the severe reactions of many member states on the issues of the accession funds, human rights and the release of the visa for 80 million. Turkish citizens. Among these are France, Italy, Cyprus and the Visegrad countries, with the latter not be excluded to try with a new veto to block any deal.
It is significant that the head of the European Council, Donald Tusk, who toured in Nicosia, and Ankara in the last few days, he noted that all sides need to make concessions in order to find a solution. Cautiously optimistic appeared the head of the european Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker in an interview with the German Handelsblatt, noting with a sense that “the cooperation of the E.E. with Turkey should not be “translated” to speed up the procedures for Ankara’s accession to the Union”.
The details of the trip of the prime minister in Brussels and the demands with which we stand face to face mr. Tsipras came under the microscope of consecutive meeting at the Maximos Mansion. These include the characterization of Turkey as a “safe third country”, as well as the inclusive capital of Ankara, for which the government headquarters is in constant contact with Nicosia, but also with the Dutch Presidency of the EU and the Me. Rute. The threshold of Maximus spent the afternoon Foreign minister Nikos Kotzias and the deputy minister Nikos Xydakis, who together with the director of the diplomatic cabinet of the prime minister, mr ÎšÎ±Î»Ï€Î±Î´Î¬ÎºÎ· laid on the table the data for the two-day Session.
At the Maximos Mansion underline that the positions with which comes the prime minister at the Summit, remain in the national line that had been drawn to the Council’s Political Leaders and summarized, as indicated by the government representative Olga Î“ÎµÏÎ¿Î²Î±ÏƒÎ¯Î»Î· in the update of the policy editors in:

The first taste, however, of the two-day Session will get the Alexis Tsipras with a scent of… social-democracy, as it has been invited – for the first time a leader of the Left – the preparatory meeting of European Socialists. There, among other things, are politicians such as Francois Hollande, Matteo Way, mr. Î¤Î¯Î¼ÎµÏÎ¼Î±ÏÏ‚, Martin Schultz. However, the prime minister will have the ability to “tell” and with the head of the Democratic Î£Ï…Î¼Ï€Î±ÏÎ¬Ï„Î±Î¾Î·Ï‚, Fofi Gennimata, which also will be present.
