  • [01] ═D leader in Helsinki for EPP summit

    (┴═┴-╠PA) -- Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras will be in Helsinki later on Wednesday to attend the European People's Party (EPP) summit on Europe's economic governance, to take place on Friday.

    In the summit, Samaras will outline his party's positions on Greece's economic crisis and underline the need to take development measures including the utilisation of public property.

    Samaras is expected to point out that the debt problem faced by Ireland and southern European countries should be dealt with on a single basis, and as regards Greece, he will back the extension of the repayment period for its bailout package without the adoption of additional economic measures.

    The Helsinki Summit will be attended by EU heads of state and government who are members of the EPP, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek. (┴═┴-╠PA)
