  • [01] PARLIAMENT AID GREECE

    The Plenary of the House of Representatives approved on Thursday the bill for the financial aid of 60,6 million Euro to Greece.

    The relevant bill was submitted on Thursday before the House Plenary, it was declared as urgent, and was examined by the Parliamentary Committee on Financial, and Budgetary Affairs at the presence of Finance Minister Charilaos Stavrakis and the Director General of the Ministry the same day.

    During the afternoon session of the Plenary, Stavrakis and Members of the House noted that the Cyprus financial aid to Greece may increase, if the final amount of the aid from the Eurozone changes.

    The leaders of the EU member states of the Eurozone decided on March 25, 2010, to take effective and coordinated measures to protect the financial stability of Eurozone, if needed.

    On the basis of that decision, the leaders decided that in the case the aid to Greece from the markets is inadequate, a coordinated support from all the members of the Eurozone, along with the International Monetary Fund, should be provided.
