Gov’t sources: The government is working hard to achieve a fair agreement

The initiative of EU Commissioner Pierre Moscovici to visit Athens in the aftermath of the European Commission’s estimates that are in full contrast to the pessimistic estimates of the IMF is a positive act, government sources said to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA).

“Whatever applies to Greece, it also applies to Europe,” the same source said and stressed the firm government position that nobody can tolerate a renewed technical crisis.

“The government is working hard to achieve a fair agreement, a socially sustainable and politically bearable agreement as soon as possible,” it underlined and added: “It has to be a comprehensive agreement as Athens is aiming to close all open issues at once.”

The source also said that German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble is politically isolated while the IMF still has irrational demands.
