Greek FinMin Varoufakis: Greece is Entering the Post-Bailout Era

varoufakisGreek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, while addressing the Parliament, declared that Greece is on the brink of the post-bailout era and also fixes the mistakes that caused the country’s depression. “With tonight’s vote of confidence, Greece is entering the ‘post-bailout’ era,” he said, and while answering to PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos’ accusations, he ruled out accepting any bailout terms that raise Greece’s debt. Regarding the negotiations, he said that “game strategy is for games. You do not play with Europe’s future, you do not play with Greece’s future.”
In addition, he stressed that he rejects around 30% of the existing austerity program and urged opposition MPs to support him in the Eurogroup negotiations, as “this is the first Greek government going to the Eurogroup standing upright and now walking in bowed.” Finally, he explained that 30% of the austerity program is “toxic” and declared: “If you are not willing to even consider a clash, you are not negotiating. We are not seeking a clash. We will do everything to avoid it. But you are not negotiating if you have ruled it out.”
