Greece is and will remain an integral part of the European Union, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos said while meeting with Alexis Tsipras after the #greferendum, Monday July 6,2015
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande asked for a EU summit on Greece on Tuesday, while both leaders agreed that the Greek people's vote 'must be respected", Berlin said in an announcement, July 5, 2015

Tsipras: we are all one

Addressing to the nation soon after the smashing success of the referendum to which Prime Miniser himself called the Greeks one week earlier, Alexis Tsipras, showing his grandeur as a true leader, asked all the Greeks to show Unity, as priority Nr1 from this moment and on .

 By Antonis Samaras having resigned from the Presidency of his party, defeated on the max as never before, Alexis Tsipras visited the President of Democracy on 01.00 Monday morning Athens time, and called for a Council of the Leaders of all political parties to face together the new negotiations day . 

"At this time the place needs more than ever unity in order to overcome the difficulties," said Tsipras "Irrelevanlty to what you might have voted, Yes o No, from now on, We ar all one"

"The Greek people have changed the question of dialogue in Europe. The people gave an answer to What of a  Europe they want . It is  a  Europe of solidarity.''

He stressed that the debt issue will now be set at the negotiating table adding that the IMF report confirms the Greek position on the need to restructure the debt. Tsipras said the government is already working  to restore economic stability and the operation of the banking system , expressing the confidence for the understanding the ECB has to urgently show " "We are ready to continue negotiations on the basis of social justice and the transfer of the burden from the weak to financially strong ones," he stated. "There are no easy solutions, but there are fair, viable solutions."  Prime Minister added that the mandate is not a mandate for rupture, but a mandate for a viable solution, which he will safeguard without delays.


Voila! Drink your sour pain on Grexit

What a timing !
Perfectly patended, scheduled and organised to be launched the Grexit drink was conceived as an idea and started to be materialised on January, when Alexis Tsipras won the naitonal elections. Now, by Europe's blackmail to Greee for a rela Grexit, the drink is served in Germany as the latest hype. Go to our Greek to me ! article
 #Grexit in a bottle, Yay… “Zum Wohl”, such a #moodhack!    


One week before the #Greferendum  Treasury Department said Sunday that Lew had spoken a day earlier to key European officials, urging them to maintain financial stability in the coming days — and to consider “potential debt relief.

"The risk of an accident goes up the more times you have these [situations, and] everyone rushes to a deadline. I hope they can reach an agreement that prevents Greece from going through the deep pain that a breakdown would cause, and it doesn't create risks to either the European or the global economy. This is not the time for a shock.”


Ultimatum: You take it or leave it  Greece

  • AP, June 30  European Union President Donald Tusk has warned the Greek people that a "no" vote in the referendum won't give their government more leverage to seek a better deal with Greece's creditors.

"One thing should be very clear: if someone says that the government will have a stronger negotiating position with the 'no' vote, it is simply not true."


"The Greeks, we have recieved such an unexplainably violent policy of economic aggression, by which some believe that they will bend us as a nation and make us bow. Obviously they have not read in the Greek history that Greece and the Greeks however much you make them bleed,  they know to survive, to reconfigure and become creative again "...

The hero: "Your Hands Off Greece Mr Schultz!"

Dear President (Martin Schultz )I very much regret that I have to adress to you personally, once again... today the free Greece, a country that expresses the will of the Greek people in order to carve its own path, meets the fierce reaction from the three institutions, the troika, as well as by your side. And that strikes me. Who gave you this right? ....." Manolis Glezos MEP , June 14, 2015

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is doing everything in her power to keep Greece in the eurozone, the chancellor's spokesman Steffen Seibert stressed on  May5


"Where there is a will there is a way "

June 18 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday a deal between Greece and its creditors was still possible if Athens showed the necessary will, amid mounting pessimism that the austerity-hit country might crash out of the euro zone.

Soon after Luxbrg Eurogroup, US Treasuy Secretary called Athens


In a statement, the US Treasury secretary Jack Lew Treasury revealed that Lew told Tsipras that the Greek people, and the global economy, would suffer if Athens can’t reach a deal with creditors.The statement added:

“Lew underscored the urgency of Greece making a serious move to reach a pragmatic compromise with its creditors.”

Last month, Lew told an audience in London that all sides should “double down” their efforts to get a deal fast. That plea didn’t spark a deal, so with just two weeks to go until Greece’s bail expires, Lew has made this fresh intervention

"Here comes the criminal.., to say Hello"


Lagarde introduced herself on the June 18 eurogroup meeting to Varoufakis saying: “the criminal in chief comes to say hello”

Talking  to the Parliamentary Commitee of his party , Tuesday June 16, 2015, the prime minister said that it was time for Europe to rethink the role of the International Monetary Fund in its affairs.
"The IMF has criminal responsibilities for the current state of the country," he said. 
Tsipras noted that the IMF's positions had currently prevailed and "had led to proposals not based on correct logic but which lead, instead, to further recession."
"What we are asked to do is accept an agreement that will drag down an economy that is ready to stand on its feet, drag it into a recessionary vortex and uncertainty," he said.
"If the aim is to continue the IMF programme, which the whole world knows has failed, then the Greek Parliament is given no choice. We are obliged not to submit to pressures and blackmail. The time has come for our partners to speak clearly. Do they want the IMF to be a part of the agreement, carrying these failed formulas? And why do they accept [the IMF's] harsh measures but not its proposals for debt restructuring?"
Insisting that Greece had presented sustainable proposals, Tsipras said the creditors' reply was a five-page document that seemed to ignore the preceding four months of intensive talks

 Panagiotis Roumeliotis, Greece’s former representative to the IMF, on a public hearing before the "Debt Truth" Committee in the Greek Parliament on Monday June 17. He made clear that according to  official IMF report, Greece’s debt was “quite possibly not sustainable” and so its board had to change its Statute to be able to fund the country. 
“They made wrong calculations and overly optimistic estimations,” he told the committee, adding that “responsibility weighs not only on our country which didn’t do what should have been done, but also our partners.”
 
“If debt restructuring had taken place then [in May 2010], the ‘haircut’ needed would be just 30 pct … which would provide some breathing space to the Greek economy and wouldn’t require a violent fiscal adjustment,” he added.
