  • [01] Gov't spokeswoman Voultepsi on Samaras-Merkel meeting

    ANA/MPA---German Chancellor Angela Merkel is "absolutely institutional and would not take any initiative on her own," government spokeswoman Sofia Voultepsi said on Wednesday commenting on Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' meeting with Merkel.

    "There is the troika in place, so Ms. Merkel would not commit to anything. Neither did we ask for it," Voultepsi told private ANT1 TV, stressing that Merkel spoke positively on Greece and for the first time the two officials shared identical views.

    "Whatever they said in private, it was also said publicly," Voultepsi added.

    [02] SYRIZA: Samaras returned empty-handed from Berlin

    Prime Minister Antonis Samaras once more "fell short of expectations," SYRIZA spokesman Panos Skourletis told ANT1 TV commenting on Samaras' meeting with German Chancellor Merkel.

    "Sometimes, the devil is in the details and I think Merkel and Samaras were absolutely clear on one point. Merkel said that things would progress in such a way that would conclude the memorandum programme. Samaras, in slightly different words, said exactly the same thing; that we will move within the framework of the memorandum programme," he said.

    "Consequently, I believe Samaras went and came back empty-handed. And on the crucial, strategic for Europe issue, which is the need to loosen the Stability Pact, namely the loosening of extreme austerity policies, he was left irreparably exposed," he noted.
