Athens, September 29, 2011

Answering questions by reporters in regards to the ratifications of EFSF’s new institutional framework, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister of the Hellenic Republic expressed his satisfaction and his optimism for the completion of the relevant processes in all member states, since the decisions of July 21 are of vital importance for the euro and the euro area.

Moreover, Mr. Venizelos made a connection between the result of the vote in the German Parliament with the fact that Greece has sent a very clear and decisive message at an international level that it meets its obligations that stem from the support mechanism. Those are not obligations towards the troika, Greece’s institutional partners and creditors, but towards the country itself and most of all towards its young generation.
