  • [01] PM: 'Greece will be saved and will change'

    Prime Minister George Papandreou pledged on Tuesday that "Greece will be saved and shall change", while addressing the Federation of Hellenic Enterprises' (SEV) general assembly at the Megaron Concert Hall.

    "For as long as I am here nothing else preoccupies me," the prime minister added.

    Papandreou said the "chapter of changes" is not over, but is under way, and added that if the country collapses now "all the sacrifices will be in vain".

    "We shall either wage the battle to the end, in order to enable funding to continue or we shall give the right (to others) to put Greece on the margins of the EU's hard core," he said.

    Papandreou, who spoke hours after a round of talks with political party leaders, called for consensus and joint responsibility to pass "the promontory of the coming weeks," saying that a government cannot struggle alone with the "beasts" while being snipped at continuously, within the country, for petty-partisan reasons.

    "I am open to whatever realistic proposal, provided it upgrades our credibility and achieves the targets we have set and that we have agreed with our partners," Papandreou said, referring to his meetings with party leaders on Tuesday.

    "Consensus is not only a national necessity, but it is also feasible in practice," the prime minister said, outlining a series of issues in which there is a convergence of views between the government and the main opposition party.
