Between the new Greek government and the Euro Group, there has been an uproar. Greece will will no longer work with the lender inspectors of the troika, the Finance Minister Giani Varoufakis said on Friday after a meeting with euro group chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem in Athens.
Greek Finance Minister holds the austerity program not feasible
“Our country refuses to cooperate with the troika,” Varoufakis said. The imposed austerity program was not implemented in practice. The Greek people have rejected it in the elections last Sunday.
Dijsselbloem urged the Greeks on the other hand, to honor their promises. An international conference on a haircut, as the new government calls them, refused Dijsselbloem. “There is already such a conference and the Euro group called” Dijsselbloem said. The reform controls the troika of the EU Commission, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank will be rejected by many Greeks as patronizing. (AP)
