 WPJ Spring 2004 -George Papandreou’s Honorable Legacy by Nicholas X. Rizopoulos
By way of contrast, the younger George Papandreou (whose mother, like Churchill’s, was American) has always behaved in a low-key fashion, with a personal lifestyle (unlike his father’s or grandfather’s) unmarred by sexual or other scandals.
Papandreou simply never wavered from his principal goal, which was to try to mend Greco-Turkish fences once and for all, beginning in Cyprus.
Such an outcome, seemingly legitimizing the permanent division of the island, would be unfortunate on all counts—for the long-term welfare of the two Cypriot communities, for Greek-Turkish relations in general, and of course in terms of Turkey’s own pending candidacy for EU membership.
