  • [01] Dep. FM Kourkoulas: The crisis could have been avoided if eurozone was different

    ANA/MPA---"In order to win the heart and the mind of the European citizens we should not forget that beyond everything people want security and safety for the themselves and for their families" said Deputy Foreign Minister Dimitris Kourkoulas on Saturday in his address to the German think tank Körber-Stiftung event "The impact of the crisis in EU: hit and wounded?" held at the national library in Athens.

    "We are changing and reforming EU and the eurozone we want to keep the good of the past and to preserve them for the next generations. When the European citizens understand this message then we can count on their support for further changes" said Kourkoulas.

    German Foreign Minister responsible for European Affairs Michael Roth participated in the event which was also attended by the Eurodeputies Elmar Brok and Danuta Hubner, former Foreign Minister of Austria Ursula Plassnik and Greek former Prime Minister Lucas Papademos.

    Referring to the crisis, Kourkoulas noted that it could have been avoided "if the architecture of the eurozone was different from the beginning...because now this architecture partly contributed to the competitiveness gap that led the deficits of the European South to become surpluses for the North".

    The Greek official said that three subject fields must be examined: the divergence among the members of the eurozone, the confrontation of the doomsayers euroscepticists and the building of a credible arc of stability.
