Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Secretary General Aleka Papariga visited the Elefsina shipyards on Monday and expressed her solidarity to the workers and the need for a major enterprise not to close.

Papariga stressed that for her party, support for the workers is self-evident, pointing out that KKE is also interested in working people having a permanent and stable job and an important production unit not to close which, regardless of how it operated until now, has the possibility of offering a great deal to the country, of course, under certain basic preconditions and in specific conditions.

"We have enterprises in Greece, places of production activity, construction, repairs of ships, we have what we say a shipbuilding and repairs industry," she said and underlined her party's position for "a united group of enterprises, which must belong to the state, but this is not enough."
