Government source on US election result: We were prepared for both possibilities

“The Greek government had been prepared for both possibilities given the failure of the pollster companies in recent years,” a government source said on Wednesday on the outcome of the US elections.

The same source said that Obama’s visit is of significant importance for the second programme review and the debt issue as well as for the fact that the US foreign policy gives emphasis on Greece and so far this does not seem to change.

“Of course there will be changes in the US interior affairs and the international system, which we are closely monitoring,” the same source added and concluded: “However, there is some concern over the respect of human rights and the rights of the minorities.”
