  • [01] Gov't seeking comprehensive deal within next 10 days

    The government is seeking for a comprehensive deal within the next ten days, government spokesman Gavriil Sakellaridis on Friday said in statements to SKAI TV.

    Sakellaridis noted that the agreement will cover all issues, including labour and social security ones.

    Asked whether Greece will retreat to the IMF' harsh demands, he said that Athens has set its red lines and does not intend to take a step back on all those issues "in this manner."

    He confirmed that Greece's creditors are asking for two VAT rates - 11 percent and 23 percent - adding that they have proposed the imposition of a 23 percent VAT on the energy sector. Greece has proposed three VAT rates - 7 percent, 14 percent and 22 percent.

    Asked on debt issue and whether it will be included in the agreement, Sakellaridis told MEGA TV that the Greek government has raised the issue from the very beginning. "It is an objective problem ... and by no means can we say that it does not exist," he said and added that whether it will be included in the agreement "will depend on how mature conditions are."

    In reply to a question, he said that "there is no problem with Mr Varoufakis and he can continue to negotiate with his partners to the extent that all respect the confidentiality of the discussions."
