State Minister: ‘We didn’t ask for IMF’s participation in Greece’s program’
Greece never asked for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to participate in its economic program, State Minister Nikos Pappas told Italian news agency Ansamed on Friday, during a joint press conference with Sandro Gozi, Deputy Secretary to the Prime Minister of Italy for European Affairs.
“We didn’t ask for IMF’s participation in the program because we believe that Europe should be capable of resolving its problems alone,” he said.
“The IMF’s presence was requested by those countries which reject a deeper European integration, but we believe that the IMF is asking for reforms that have proven ineffective,” he added.
