  • [01] Europe should help Greece, says German Christian Democrats' MEP Weber to ANA-MPA

    ANA/MPA---Europe should help Greece and others such as Cyprus, but particularly Greece, Manfred Weber, European People's Party vice-president and German Christian Democrats' MEP said in an interview on ANA-MPA WebTV.

    "If you look at Greece you can understand that there is a major crisis and everyone should realize that this is one of the upcoming challenges but not only for Greece," he noted.

    "There is a great responsibility regarding Athens, but I believe that the current government is doing a very good job. But now there is an overall European responsibility for resolving the crisis and taking decisions on the crisis," Weber added.

    The German politician underlined how crucial the next 5 years are in creating jobs and boosting growth. "We need jobs and growth in the EU and there is a 100 percent responsibility on national governments to take the necessary steps to boost growth, remove obstacles created by the bureaucracy, and kick start the economy," he said.

    Regarding the importance of the upcoming European Parliament elections, Weber stated: "I support any robust national approach, I support the policy of the European People's Party, namely that people should decide."

    [02] FinMin Yannis Stournaras in Brussels

    ANA/MPA---Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras on Wednesday will participate on a trilateral discussion between the European Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament regarding the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM), in Brussels.

    Stournaras, who is attending in his capacity as president of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council (ECOFIN), will be attending along with Intergovernmental Conference (IGC) president Jeroen Dijsselbloem, Dutch Foreign minister.

    The SRM is the banking union's main pillar safeguarding the financial stability, the enhancement of trust and the increase of liquidity of the European economy, topping the Greek EU Presidency's priorities agenda.

    Stournaras had participated in the previous discussion regarding SRM that took place after the ECOFIN of March 3, which gave the Greek Presidency a new order to conduct more flexible negotiations with the European Parliament and finalize a deal introducing a common banks' recapitalization fund and mechanism, before the end of the parliamentary period in April.
