European Commission - Statement

Statement by President Juncker following the floods in Greece

Brussels, 15 November 2017

I am saddened to learn about the many people who have lost their lives and loved ones during the deadly floods affecting central Greece.

On behalf of the whole European Commission, I would like to express our full solidarity with the Greek people and authorities at this difficult time.

A tragedy in any of our Member States is a tragedy for all of Europe.

We stand ready to support Greece in any way we can. Our EU emergency assistance tools are at the full disposal of the authorities.
