  • [01] Kouvelis: PM must propose issue of eurobond at EU summit

    AMNA-- The Greek government, regardless of its limited abilities in its caretaker capacity, must take advantage of the international environment and put forward a series of proposals that could relieve the Greek society, moblise the production engine, and boost employment and halt the galloping unemployment, Democratic Left (DIMAR) leader Fotis Kouvelis said on Monday after a meeting with caretaker prime minister Panagiotis Pikrammenos, who is holding separate talks throughout the day with political party leaders ahead of an EU summit on Wednesday.amna

    In that direction, the caretaker prime minister must propose the issue of a eurobond, "as DIMAR has insisted from the very beginning", seek relaxation of the fiscal adjustment through extension of the time, propose direct financing of the member states from the European Central Bank (ECB) and insist on the need for boosting the funds for the European Investment Bank (EIB).

    [02] ND leader : Greece must remain in euro

    AMNA---Greece must remain in the euro and benefit from the changes appearing on the horizon in Europe, New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras said on Monday after a meeting with caretaker prime minister Panagiotis Pikrammenos, who is holding separate talks throughout the day with political party leaders ahead of an EU summit on Wednesday.amna

    Samaras said that over the last two years he had been alone in advocating what the European leaders are saying today, namely the need for the issue of a euro-bond, an investment bond, but also recovery measures instead of one-sided austerity.amna

    "Now that Europe is changing, we must remain in the euro in order to benefit," Samaras said, adding that he told the caretaker prime minister that Greece must move in that direction.
