We want the programme review to close as soon as possible, Alternate Defence Min Vitsas says

We want the programme review to close as soon as possible, Alternate Defence Minister Dimitris Vitsas said on Monday adding that with hard effort we can bridge the gap in fiscal, labour and energy issues.

In statements to SKAI TV, he said that the issue has not yet closed as a result of different views between the EU institutions and the IMF which has not decided whether it will participate in the programme.

He also ruled out the possibility of new measures, adding that the measures already taken are enough.

Moreover, he reiterated that Greece’s sovereign rates are taken for granted, are not set on the negotiation table and are guaranteed by international treaties, adding that anyone who has problems in its interior should solve them otherwise.
