He also noted that he did not understand why Cyprus decided classify Greece in Category B, adding that he hopes the issue will be clarified between the two countries soon.
“It is a decision that I do not understand, I consider it to be wrong, I do not know exactly what criteria it was based on,” Theoharis said.
“I hope that there will be an understanding and an explanation between the epidemiologists of the two sides so that the position can be explained that our country is very safe and much safer than any other country. I do not consider it logical and right for our country to be in category B,” he continued.
