  • [01] Tourists brave the crisis, choosing Greece

    July is traditionally the month of summer vacations. Despite the crisis, the flow of foreign tourists in Greece is at its peak. A large number of tourists that came to Greece, undeterred by rumours of cash problems and food shortages, testify on camera and express their excitement about the beauties of the country and the warmth of its people.

    [02] Gov't Vice President: Greece's partners did not find the courage to admit that their programme has failed

    ANA/MPA---Government Vice President Yiannis Dragasakis referring to the negotiations said "that the Greece's partners did not find the courage to admit that the programme applied in Greece is the last five years has failed" speaking to private radio "Sto Kokkino" on Wednesday.

    Referring to the referendum's result he estimated that it rekindled that revanchism on the part of Greece's creditors adding "The threat that we will exit from the eurozone is like the bee's threat that it stings and then dies" he said and noted that all possibilities were discussed during the negotiations.

    "The acceptance of the deal was a necessary withdrawal. The agreement has not been completed yet, he said adding that an important element of the agreement is that safeguards the bank deposits "For us it was very important to protect the people that, for ideological reasons, did not send their money abroad or hide it in their houses" said Dragasakis.

    Asked on former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis' statements, Dragasakis said among others "Serious government is the government that plans a Plan B not the one that speaks of a Plan B'.

    [03] Alternate Finance Minister Valavani resigns

    ANA/MPA---Alternate Finance Minister Nandia Valavani informed Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras that she resigns from her post in a letter sent on 13 July to the Maximos mansion. The Finance Ministry in an announcement on Wednesday released the full text of Valavani's letter.

    Valavani among others said that she supported the negotiation group on Friday because she was certain that there will not be an agreement.

    "I still believe that there will not be an agreement. That the tactic of the sovereign circles in Germany is the total humiliation of the government and the country" said Valavani and thanked the prime minister for giving her the opportunity to serve their liberation effort.

    "I want to believe that the fight continues" she concluded
