German Chancellor: 'Greek Politicians Need to Demonstrate Political Will'

Angela Merkel discusses Russia at German parliament building“Germany’s efforts aim at keeping Greece in the Eurozone, so that the people in Greece have the prospect of a better future,” as in Ireland, Cyprus and other countries, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in Parliament ahead of the EU summit next week.
“I remain convinced that, where there is will, there is a way. If the politically responsible in Greece demonstrate this political will, then an agreement with the three institutions is still possible. That would be the necessary basis for subsequent decisions at the Eurogroup and the German parliament, ” Merkel added and reiterated that solidarity goes hand in hand with the same responsibility and the same efforts.
She pointed out that Greece is on a good course, but certainly (this course) has not yet been completed. Unfortunately, some necessary structural reforms were again and again postponed… In the monetary union, solidarity and responsibility go hand in hand.
Therefore, the finance ministers agreed on February 20 with the Greek government on the basis for the further work. This agreement will allow the Greek government, under the current program and its terms, to set its own priorities. The Greek government has pledged in this agreement to implement broad structural reforms.
These reforms must now be implemented and the three institutions need to ratify them. In the same agreement, the Greek government reaffirms the “clear consent to the full and on time fulfillment of its financial obligations towards its creditors,” she said.
