Dragasakis says that nobody should play political games with the banks

Government Vice President and Development Minister Yiannis Dragasakis stressed on Thursday that nobody should play political games with the banks.

“The bank sector is a sensitive area and we should all be careful,” he said and added: “Speculative games must be investigated and institutions are obliged to show responsibility,” he underlined.

In an interview with Sto Kokkino radio station, Dragasakis said that there is a contradiction between the fundamentals of the banks and the stock market. He also explained that the economy is on a recovery phase based on the stress tests, there is capital adequacy and non-performing loans targets have been met.
