  • [01] PM: Leave Greece in peace to do its job

    (ANA-MPA)-Prime minister George Papandreou made an appeal for Greece to be left in peace to do its job, responding to a flurry caused by a German magazine article that Greece was considering exiting the euro currency and returning to the drachma, and which drew sharp reactions and denials from Greece and various EU officials.

    "I call on everyone, especially in the EU, to leave Greece in peace to do its job," Papandreou stressed on Meganissi on Saturday, on the sidelines of the 4th national Conference of Small Islands, and rejected the speculations as "irresponsible".(ANA-MPA)

    Papandreou stressed that his government is managing the country's debt with responsibility and seriousness, with the interests of the Greek people as its criterion.(ANA-MPA)

    The premier charged that certain individuals attempted on Friday to spread fear for "speculative purposes", and warned of dangers lying in wait and provocations, stressing that no scenario of Greece's exiting the euro was discussed at Friday's informal meeting chaired in Luxembourg by Eurogroup president Jean-Claude Juncker.(ANA-MPA)

    The premier stressed that the changes will proceed, and must be fair and more determined.(ANA-MPA)

    "We will attain our goal," he said.(ANA-MPA)
