  • [01] Schaeuble considers troika's work positive and any attempted renegotiation on tax issues a waste of time

    ANA/MPA---German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, on Tuesday in his address to the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee, described any attempted renegotiation of tax issues with Greece as a "waste of time." On this matter, Schaeuble suggested that in the past, the Greek authorities did not respond positively to the European exhortation for changes in the tax system.

    On the Greek elections, he said the result was impressive and that the new government formation is interesting.

    He noted, however, that the resolving Greece's problems was the main issue as the Greek people have suffered more than others in Europe. He also said this situation was the result of the failure of the political elites in Greece during the past decades.

    He stated that he, as Germany's Finance Minister, and other Eurozone Finance ministers have offered great help for the support of Greece, which however did not make full use of that aid. He added we could not be saying that Greece's programme was not on track, as the country achieved a primary surplus. He also noted that the Greek people have a difficult way ahead of them, but at least they are on the right track.

    Moreover, he said the decisions taken by the ECB in relation to Greece are fully aligned with the mandate given to the bank.
