  • [01] The government will not sign a third memorandum, gov't spokesman Sakellaridis says

    "The government will obviously not sign a third memorandum," government spokesman Gavriil Sakellaridis said during a press briefing on Monday.

    Asked to comment on reports that an agreement in a form of a "take it or leave it" ultimatum may be given to Greece, he said that something like that would not help reaching a mutual beneficial solution because it would hurt the ongoing dialogue. He estimated that something like that would not happen and expressed the view that reason towards the direction of a mutual beneficial solution will dominate.

    The fact that the government is optimistic, he added, does not mean that the government will take a step back on its red lines. "There is progress" he said, but on the side of the government there are still some issues to be resolved so that the agreement is mutually beneficial.

    Sakellaridis noted that red lines work as defence to an agreement and stressed the importance of the 4 pillars set by the Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at the Economist conference in order for a viable solution to exist.

    As for the payment of the June 5 installment, he underlined that it is the government's responsibility to be consistent with its financing obligations inside the country and abroad adding that creditors, on their part, must also show consistency.

    He ruled out the possibility of a political leaders council, adding that the prime minister is always willing to answer any questions of political leaders.

    Sakellaridis noted that salaries and pensions will be normally paid at the end of the month.
