Government spokesman Dimitris Reppas on Tuesday expressed satisfaction over the outcome of the European Union's Nice summit, saying the government achieved its targets.
He added that the right of veto remains on foreign policy and shipping issues and in relation to financing programs.
Reppas also expressed the government's satisfaction over the secured number of Eurodeputies for Greece and hailed the European Union-Turkey partnership agreement, which, as he said, "went well for us."
Referring to reactions by opposition parties, Reppas said they are probably unaware of the EU's internal affairs, adding that their accusations "are groundless and untenable".
