ATHENS – A lawmaker from Greece’s major opposition party who said the country should leave NATO isn’t speaking for the party, an official from the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) said.

MP Theodoris Dritsas last week that Greece should leave the military alliance of countries,, sparking sharp rebukes from critics who said staying in NATO is essential for the country’ security.

“We never said we plan to leave NATO. What we have said is that we should fight so that NATO breaks up on its own,” SYRIZA secretary Dimitris Vitsas said, although he didn’t explain how it would help Greece without the umbrella protection the alliance offers.

Speaking in Parliament last week, Dritsas said that Greece should leave the transatlantic alliance “that benefits neither Greece, not humanity.”

Dritsas said his statement reflected the official party line which calls for Greece’s disengagement from NATO but SYRIZA tried to partially back away from that.
