WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Greek government has been clashing for months with Brussels and its major money lenders in Paris and Berlin, who want Athens to increase taxes and cut welfare spending.
“All parties seem to be publically indicating that they would like to resolve this situation in a way that allows Greece to remain part of the Eurozone. The only way that that will happen is to agree to a package of reforms and financing that will allow Greece to get back on the path of economic growth and debt sustainability.”
On Sunday, the majority of Greeks voted to ditch creditors’ proposals that envisaged harsher austerity in exchange for a new cash injection.
“We continue to believe it is in the US interest and in global interest for these differences to be resolved.”
