“An issue that will be discussed is the global food crisis and I have called a meeting with the Rural Development and Food Ministry leadership on Monday to ensure the food security in our country”, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said after the conclusion of the EU Summit on Friday underlining that “it does not concern our country but we must be prepared”.

“Food risk in Greece does not exist” stated Rural Development and Food Ministry sources to Athens-Macedonian News Agency noting that at the meeting on Monday will examine the government’s next moves to prevent any food crisis.
