The President of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Guy Verhofstadt referred to the need for structural reforms in Greece.
“2015 was a turbulent year for our continent. Not the least because of the Greek crisis. The people of Greece continue to suffer terribly as a result of years of political mismanagement and clientelism. As I made clear to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, it is important genuine reforms are now completed, to get Greece growing again.
Looking to the future, the rest of Europe must also take steps to help ensure Greece’s debt is on a sustainable footing,” he posted on his Twitter.
