  • [01] Greece pays tribute to Jacqueline de Romilly

    ANA-MPA/Prime Minister George Papandreou on Sunday paid tribute to renowned Hellenist and member of the French Academy Jacqueline de Romilly, who passed away on Saturday at the age of 97.

    Papandreou said that Jacqueline de Romilly honoured Greek thought, devoted herself to the promotion of Greek literature and arts and participated in every public discussion that shed light on the ideas and values of ancient Greek culture.

    "With her work for Greece she promoted Greek culture abroad as well. Her incessant contribution to Greek letters was recognised with her election at the Athens Academy, as well as with her naturalisation as a Greek," the prime minister said.ana-mpa

    "Jacqueline de Romilly stood by Greece in difficult moments and promoted humanism that distinguishes the Greeks," Papandreou stressed

    [02] FinMin: We have not sold our soul

    ANA-MPa/Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou, speaking in Parliament on Sunday evening during the debate on the 2011 budget, stressed that "we have not sold our soul", adding that the policy being followed is the only one that can save the Greek economy from bankruptcy.

    Papaconstantinou further said that despite the efforts that Greece will make, its ultimate success will depend on the recovery and protection of the eurozone and for this reason the upgrading of Greece's image and prestige is of great importance to enable it to participate with its own say in crucial European decisions.ana/mpa

    "We are proving on a daily basis that all the sacrifices we called for, we are not squandering them on personal strategies, but on a stronger voice for the country and its prime minister, for a reliability and prestige that Greece thought it had achieved, but that that it lost over the past 5-6 years," the Finance Minister said.
