Then the members of the club danced a traditional Kefalonian Ball. “Good evening lords” was then sung by the young children from the North Epirus Associations under the auspices of the Democratic Union of the National Greek Minority – OMONIA. The children danced a traditional dance to the sound of the clarinet.

Al. Tsipras: “I would not be able to accept, without the minority issues having progressed, to organize fiestas”
In addition, in a short dialogue that they had in front of the cameras the vice president George Tzomakas, on behalf of the president of Omonia, invited Mr. Tsipras to officially visit Northern Epirus. “For the situation in Northern Epirus, not much or almost nothing has changed since that day when you made that important statement in Bucharest (as in the quadripartite Greece-Bulgaria-Serbia-Romania, on March 29, 2019),” said Mr. Tzomakas.
“I know that,” said Alexis Tsipras, “and one of the reasons I didn’t accept my friend Edi Rama’s invitation was because I would never have been able to accept, without the minority issues having progressed, organizing fiestas.” He noted that “Albania’s European path must be combined with very important steps in the matter of rights, human rights and of course the property issue of the Greek minority, because human rights and the EU go together, they are not two separate things. And we will support the neighboring country in its choice if, of course, it too is consistent with the principles and values of the EU”.
