As a General Accounting Office we are interested in paying our obligations on time,” Alternate Finance Minister Dimitris Mardas on Friday said. “So far things are going well,” he said and added that “what has been estimated and scheduled to be paid, it will be paid.”

In statements to ANT1 TV, he pointed out that the conclusions on the Greek economy coming from abroad are based on other data and reports than the ones we use adding that the General Accounting Office has knowledge of the real data. “Based on the data available, we can pay,” he noted, stressing that “a negotiation is underway which aims at ensuring liquidity in perpetuity.”
