INTERVIEW AT TRT WORLD 15.11.2016

Pavlos Eleftheriadis speaks to TRT World about President's Obama visit to Greece. He discusses the question of debt relief for Greece as well as anti-americanism and Prime Minister Tsipras' attitude to the US. He makes the point that Syriza's anti-americanism has its origins in Left wing aversion to US complicity to the dictatorship of 1967-1974, but that modern versions of anti-americanism are more cultural in nature and are associate with conservative withdrawal form globalisation, the open society and free trade. This is why Tsipras has chosen the far right as his government coalition partner.
