In an interview with Mega TV on Tuesday, Kikilias said that “a new kind of patriotism is needed that will concern the citizens, politicians and the structure of the state. An overall effort to support, help and save our country, in the face of the threat of the climate crisis
The Minister pointed out that the climate crisis that affects the entire planet and mainly regions such as the Mediterranean, requires cooperation and coordination of all the services involved: The Ministry of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection, the co-competent ministries (Ministry of the Interior, Infrastructure and Transport Ministry, Interior Ministry, local administration).
“We will bring a law to Parliament, which will firstly check powers and responsibilities and impose close cooperation. And I am talking about specific things that must be made and the way we should exploit our forests. What existed in the past is over,” the minister emphasized.
