Former Greek Prime Minister and current President of Socialist International George Papandreou on Saturday warned against rising nationalism in Europe.

“We must stop nationalist rhetoric in Europe,” he said at a forum on Balkan cooperation held in Thessaloniki.

“[First it was] the stereotypes about ‘lazy’ and ‘spendthrift’ southerners. Now we are witnessing the spread of nationalism inside European societies,” he added.
