  • [01] Gov't spokeswoman Gerovassili reacts to Schaeuble's comments

    "Someone must remind (German Finance Minister Wolfgang) Schaeuble that Greece is giving a huge battle of humanism at the EU borders, even in conditions of economic and social crisis after five years of continuous austerity," government spokeswoman Olga Gerovassili said on Monday.

    "The vast majority of Europeans recognize it. He prefers to attack Greece verbally, apparently for his own party reasons," she added.

    Schaeuble told a German paper that Greece has ignored for years the rules of the Dublin Regulation which oblige migrants to file for asylum in the first country of the European Union they arrive in.

    Speaking to Germany's "Bild am Sonntag" newspaper, Schaeuble noted that his country's courts have ruled that Germany will not be returned to Greece, as behavior towards refugees and migrants was not humane.

    Commenting on the Greek crisis, the minister also said that only structural reforms will improve the country's economy and that Greeks must not blame others for their problems.
