Greece Awaits Institutions’ Invitation to Restart Negotiations, Govt Sources Say

maximouGreece awaits the institutions’ invitation to continue negotiations, government sources said on Monday, pointing to a statement made by government Vice President Yiannis Dragasakis in Brussels who clarified that “the Greek side is ready to complete negotiations.”

“We await the institutions’ invitation and we are ready at any moment to respond to the continuation of the negotiations,” the sources said.

The same sources noted that Greece went to Brussels with comprehensive counter-proposals, following discussions between Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and other European leaders, to have another round of talks. These talks would be between the representatives of the Greek premier and those of the institutions with the aim of bridging the remaining differences and achieving a deal; but these discussions never took place, the sources said.

They said the institutions’ technical team representatives said they were unauthorized and while the Greek team submitted proposals, the representatives submitted a document with measures that the Greek Parliament has rejected.

Earlier, Tsipras chaired a meeting of the Greek political negotiation group at the government headquarters and was announced that SYRIZA’s parliamentary group will meet on Tuesday at 01:00 pm local time.

  1. In the end you will have fooled just yourselves and your fellow greek citizens. Gives us an idea what awaits the greek citizen in the future under these amateurs. LIARS … you and your government! Pathetic LIARS!

  2. I am curious were are the lies what they have said is they will not except the present arrangement and they will negotiate for a better deal which is exactly what they are doing you can use as many capitals as you like it does not change the fact they are doing what they said when elected maybe you should direct your anger at the thieves who ran this country into the ground for the last 50 years

  3. TODAY Greek Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis announced that a Greek delegation intends to sign a political Russia-Greece agreement on the support of a pipeline with Russian gas on the territory of Greece during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

    Economic cooperation, and investments between Greece and Russia will continue to grow, much to the chagrin of governments, corporations, faceless bureaucrats and bankers in Washington DC, New York, Brussels, Frankfurt, London, Paris and Berlin who do not appreciate competition. They had better get used to it, as it is only the beginning.

    In future you will see Gazprom in cooperation with Greek Petroleum companies extracting and marketing Greece’s gargantuan hydrocarbon reserves, with American and EU Oil & Gas companies missing out.
