  • [01] Gov't: Athens, Berlin partners

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greece and Germany are not opponents but partners working toward the same goal, which was to protect the eurozone and the common currency, Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas stressed on Wednesday.

    Droutsas, who accompanied Prime Minister George Papandreou on a visit to Paris for a meeting of the Socialist International council, was referring to opposing views expressed by Papandreou and German Chancellor Angela Merkel concerning a proposed "debt restructuring" mechanism for Eurozone countries that needed help meeting their debts.

    Papandreou's position in Paris was one that "reflected reality" and a "responsible position for both Greece and other countries facing difficulties but also for the entire Eurozone and the euro," Droutsas stressed in an interview with a local radio station.

    He emphasised, however, that Papandreou's criticism of Merkel's plan did not mean that Greece and Germany were "necessarily on a course of conflict" and pointed out that Europe was currently experiencing unprecedented situations.
