Commenting on Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' speech at the European Parliament, earlier today, the Press Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) points out:

He also reaffirmed that Greece will honor the agreements and will not return to the past, which means that the people must forget everything they lost".
