Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.OS) leader George Karatzaferis on Tuesday tabled a current question in parliament addressed to Prime Minister George Papandreou on the cuts in defence programmes.

Karatzaferis noted that the Armed Forces have been called on to bear the burden of the economic crisis and this has repercussions in the country's defence mostly because of the Turkish disputes.

"Until when will the answer to the country's economic problems be cutbacks in crucial defence programmes while other 'wounds' from which millions of euros are being lost, remain open? How will the country's deterrent capability remain at a high standard in the midst of this crisis?," Karatzaferis asked.
