  • [01] Gov't VP Dragasakis optimistic over an agreement - Guardian

    ANA-MPA - The SYRIZA government has a mandate to find a sustainable solution to the economy within the eurozone, Government Vice-President Yiannis Dragasakis told Guardian daily on Thursday.

    "We do not have a mandate to take Greece out of the eurozone, and it's not an option either for the government or for SYRIZA," he said ahead of a Eurogroup meeting scheduled on May 11, "we have a mandate for a sustainable solution within the eurozone."

    Dragasakis was optimistic about a solution, noting that "talks, so far, have shown there is common ground in changes and political measures and, therefore, I believe a deal is possible and in the interests of everyone."

    He added that all sides should cooperate to resolve the liquidity issue, and underlined that the government knew negotiations would be hard. "We knew that, as the first in Europe trying to change policy, things would be difficult. The troika [of foreign lenders] weren't just three institutions but a system of power, a state within a state, the real government of the country. We had to change this system, change the rules of the game," he said.

    Late on Thursday night, Dragasakis met with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to discuss developments in negotiations with Europe.
