“Nobody has a real interest in an artificial revival of the Greek crisis,” State Minister and government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos on Monday said in an interview with euro2day.gr website, adding that the Greek economy is well back on recovery track and for the first time in 7 years, Greece is within the targets of the programme.
“The Greek government has repeatedly said that the participation of the IMF is not necessary for the continuation and the success of the Greek programme,” he underlined and accused main opposition New Democracy of being doomsayers and that they will be proven wrong.
He reassured that the issue regarding the short term measures on the debt has been resolved noting that the social benefit was allocated to the pensioners.
Referring to the stance of the German Finance Ministry, he estimated that it is looking more at the domestic affairs and not the eurozone.
“The pressure for the conclusion of the second programme review has to do with the need to restore confidence, stabilize the Greek economy and put an end to negative scenarios that cause concern,” he stressed.
Regarding the conclusion of the second programme review, he expressed optimism saying that the Greek government is working hard for the conclusion of the negotiations.
As he said, the efforts are focused on the participation terms of the IMF.
