  • [01] German FM: 'We think Greece will make it'

    Greece is standing stable and this stability creates the necessary conditions for growth, said Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Thursday at a meeting with visiting German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle at the Maximos Mansion also attended by government Vice President and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos.

    "As you know, we are in the middle of a lot of political and geopolitical turmoil in the region. But within this difficult circumstance, Greece is standing stable," Samaras said. "And this is very important, if you go back and think about it, a year ago who would have thought so? But the situation is in many ways alarming in terms of what is going on around the world and we hope things will get better. And this stability serves to create the necessary conditions for what we all want, just growth."

    The PM also thanked Westerwelle for visiting and "for being a friend of Greece."

    In his response, Westerwelle thanked Samaras for the invitation and hospitality and said, "My message is a message of respect, solidarity and encouragement. I think the ship starts when you are at coast, the sails are set into development in Greece, which will bring more prosperity in the future to the people of the country. That's the reason why we are here, to express our solidarity, to send a message of encouragement and that we think that Greece will make it."

    Samaras referred to the meeting of Labour ministers in Berlin to deal with youth unemployment, which he attended on Wednesday, and said "I think it went very well. It' s a discussion that will continue in Paris later, so we are really focusing on this and that' s important also."
