  • [01] FinMin Varoufakis: 'We shall all do our duty' to reach agreement

    ANA-MPA - A solution to the talks impasse between Greece and its creditors "will be found even if at the last minute," Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis told "Kathimerini" newspaper in an interview published Sunday.

    The finance minister said the two sides would reach agreement, adding that "we shall all do our duty to prevent any issue that might undermine the unity of the eurozone."

    Adding that he remained open to constructive ideas by the country's partners and said he was "convinced that Europe knows how to produce honourable agreements through honourable disagreements." The government and its partners have already agreed to several issues, while "developments in the last few days have produced a significant level of optimism," he added.

    The government drew the line at labour rights, privatisations and fiscal targets, he stressed, adding that in terms of privatisations, specifically, the government "wants to move from the rationale of selling off (assets) at ridiculous prices to the rationale of growth in collaboration with the private sector and foreign investors."

    Among other things, he noted that the European Central Bank recognises that the banking system is sound, while responding to whether there is a "Plan B" about the talks, he said, "There is no Plan B in a mutually beneficial agreement," adding that "negotiations are being carried out sincerely and with no suggestion of bluffing."
