  • [01] PM: With reforms implemented, no more pension, wage cuts

    AMNA--The agreement is viable," Prime Minister Antonis Samaras was quoted as saying in an interview published on Saturday by an Athens weekly, in reference to the recent Eurogroup decisions.

    He also noted that if the country implements necessary reforms, no more cutbacks in salaries and pension will be taken.

    Samaras added that a bonds buy-back process does not concern pension funds and that the money channeled into the market in 2013 is greater than austerity measures. He pointed out that greater liquidity is the goal in order to reverse the vicious circle of recession.

    Moreover, Samaras again indirectly attacked the so-called "drachma lobby" in Greece and abroad, saying that if the country exited the eurozone the situation would worsen, with even harsher measures then necessary. amna

    Referring to his political opponents, the prime minister said he feels ashamed that certain politicians clearly demonstrated that they would have preferred a failure last week in Brussels, terming as "malicious" the criticism that the eurogroup solution is not final.

    "Those claiming that the country will be turned into a debt colony are ridiculous," he concluded. amna

    His interview was published in the Sunday weekly "Proto Thema".
