  • [01] Samaras: Eurogroup decision important and positive

    AMNA--New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras welcomed the Eurogroup decision on Greece as "important" and "positive", in a statement on Tuesday in Nicosia.

    Samaras, currently on a visit to Cyprus, said that the decision distances the risk of Greece's default, ensures the country's European presence and paves the way for general elections in the country.

    He added that ND's stance has been decisive regarding this decision.amna

    "The Eurogroup decision is important and positive because it distances the risk of the country's default and ensures its European prospect, gives the ability to make the debt sustainable and paves the way to elections," Samaras said in an initial reaction on the new loan programme for Greece.

    He also said that ND's contribution to this decision was decisive.amna

    "Without the party's positive vote, there would not have been either the ability for the haircut of the debt or reduction of the country's borrowing cost, or the conclusion of a new loan, decisions that point out the major differentiation, for us, between the first and second Memorandum and prove the correctness of our choices," Samaras added.amna

    He further said that "a circle of uncertainty, obscurity and back-tracking that PASOK opened up two years ago with its actions and omissions closes today".
