5. SOUNDBITE (Greek) Alexis Tsipras, Greek Prime Minister:
"We are faced with an existential crisis, an identity crisis for Europe. On one hand, Europe's face is the one that fortunately - and we should be proud of this - our people showed when in very critical and difficult times in our islands - Kos, Mytilene and other islands - extending a helping hand to those people with the greatest need at this time. And on the other hand, Europe's other face, and unfortunately the face of authoritarianism, of repression, the (face) that was shown by those that are building walls at their borders and are bombarding these defenceless people with chemicals."

7. SOUNDBITE (Greek) Alexis Tsipras, Greek Prime Minister:
"But I was also saying that this problem concerns the entire planet, not just Europe, but the international community as well, which needs to put an end to the reasons that cause this problem (mass migration). To the conflicts, the wars, to the regional crises, and to create a solid ground, for solving crises through the diplomatic way, in order for peace and security to be established. Because only if we deal with the reasons that are creating the flow of refugees can the problem be dealt with essentially."
