  • [01] FinMin Tsakalotos: Greek programme on the right track

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA/M. Aroni)---Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos said that the Greek programme is moving in the right direction adding that the government will continue the hard work.

    Upon his arrival to the Ecofin meeting in Brussels on Tuesday, Tsakalotos stressed that the Greek issue was discussed at Monday's Eurogroup and specifically the progress made regarding the prior actions and those that must be done before Christmas . "Less and less time is needed for the Greek issue, something that I consider a good sign" he said adding that "I believe that the programme is on a good course and we will continue to work hard as we have been doing in the last months".

    [02] The Grexit belongs to the past, German ambassador to Greece Schoof says

    There is no issue of a Grexit, German ambassador to Greece Peter Schoof said on Tuesday while stressing the importance of supporting Greece on the refugee issue in order to protect the Schengen zone, speaking at an event organised by the "Center for Democracy and Reconciliation in Southeast Europe."

    "The issue of Grexit belongs to the past. Neither the German Chancellor not the German Finance Minister wanted that," Schoof stated and added:

    Schoof cleared out that the single currency was not a mistake. "Within the framework of the geopolitics, it was a correct idea. But these deficiencies are now obvious and we did not work sufficiently in order to correct them."

    Referring to the refugee issue, he stressed that "if the EU borders cannot bear any more pressure, the Schengen treaty will somehow come to naught."

    [03] Institutions' representatives to arrive in Athens on Tuesday

    The representatives of the institutions will come to Athens on Tuesday ahead of a new round of negotiations with the government on the second package of prior actions that will be tabled and voted in Parliament in December.

    The list of prior actions include the settlement of bad loans, measures to combat illicit trade, public sector employees' salaries, the new regime for the General Secretariat of Public Revenues, the timetable for the Independent Power Transmission Operator (ADMIE) and the strategy for the setting up and operation of the Privatisations Fund.
