Government wants to close all pending issues by the end of the year
The government wants to close all the pending issues, such as bank recapitalization, non-performing loans, the program review and discussions on Greece’s debt as soon as possible, so that stability can return to the economy, government spokeswoman Olga Gerovasili said on Wednesday during an interview on private radio station Real FM.
“We’re interested on closing all pending issues but with society standing on its feet,” she said, so that “from next year, stability may return to economic and social life.” The first milestone is Monday’s Eurogroup, she noted.
Asked about the possibility of people losing their homes due to debts, the spokeswoman said the government will do everything in its power to ensure this doesn’t happen. “We are willing to negotiate on all possible levels. If there’s no technical solution, we will seek a political solution,” she added.
