Keep­ing calm

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The stance taken by the coun­try’s main op­po­si­tion, as well as the smaller po­lit­i­cal par­ties, in the wake of ris­ing ten­sion be­tween Greece and Turkey has been re­spon­si­ble. The op­po­si­tion par­ties have in­ten­tion­ally cho­sen not to turn up the in­ten­sity of their crit­i­cism as a re­sult of the tense sit­u­a­tion be­ing caused by Turk­ish ac­tions in the Aegean and the rhetoric com­ing from Ankara. Re­gard­less of what­ever reser­va­tions the op­po­si­tion may have about the gov­ern­ment’s han­dling of this del­i­cate diplo­matic sit­u­a­tion, the coali­tion’s op­po­nents have avoided rais­ing their voices and en­gag­ing in petty party pol­i­tics aimed purely at gains for them­selves. This stance is par­tic­u­larly worth not­ing be­cause the do­mes­tic po­lit­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment is al­ready highly charged and has been poi­soned by the gov­ern­ment it­self.
