While numerous wildfires are still being fought in Greece, the government is insisting it has fulfilled its duty in dealing with the crisis. At a media conference, a government spokesman said no other country had ever experienced an outbreak of so many fires at once. He said no amount of aircraft would have been enough to tackle the blazes. The government also maintains it dispatched its forces immediately. It remains to be seen whether the public is convinced by the explanation.
