Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos on Sunday in an interview with Kathimerini expressed optimism that the government will overcome the obstacle of the negotiations with the creditors.

“In the negotiations there will be victories and defeats,” he said and confirmed that the institutions are asking for additional measures for the period 2016-2018.
On the social security system, Tsakalotos said: “There are distortions that must be corrected, specific cases that should be reviewed so that the social security system becomes sustainable in the medium term.”

Regarding the possible withdrawal of the IMF from the program, Tsakalotos underlined that “the issue is not a Greek problem.” He noted that on one hand the IMF has very harsh neoliberal positions on the economic and social issues so it would be difficult to support a left government and on the other hand it puts pressure on the Europeans for a favourable solution on the Greek debt.
