  • [01] PM sees good result for Greece at Davos; refers to 'Euro-bond' (Adds)

    DAVOS (ANA-MPA) -- Greece had obtained a good result and sent out a positive message during the two days of the 40th World Economic Forum in Davos, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said here on Friday.

    In a statement after the end of the two-day power-fest, the Greek premier said that his team had waged a hard battle to restore the country's credibility on a political and economic level, sending a signal that Greece was ready to put its house in order and to overhaul its economy and institutions.

    "The goal is to protect ordinary Greeks, to whom we want to give prospects, because it is not right that they should pay for the mistakes made by others," he said, adding that the government had made a first positive step in this direction at Davos.

    During subsequent statements, Papandreou outlined Greece's position over the "Euro-bond" idia, initially noting that this financial tool was first tabled by European socialists two years ago when the international economic crisis first erupted, and when Greece's recent financial woes not on the horizon.

    He added the issue may be broached by certain countries at a Summit in Brussels on Feb. 11.

    "Greece will not take the lead in such a development, but if there are countries that pose it then Greece will support this," he noted.
