Amid ongoing efforts to extinguish a destructive wildfire, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday called for stronger cooperation among European Union (EU) members to tackle future natural disasters. He made the call during a visit to fire-stricken Evia island. Fanned by strong winds, the flames threatened villages some 80 kilometers northeast of Athens, forcing the evacuation of hundreds of residents on Tuesday. (Photo by Nick Paleologos/Xinhua)
