Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

US Sec­re­tary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton re­port­edly ap­plauded the Greek gov­ern­ment’s ini­tia­tive in launch­ing an am­bi­tious pri­va­ti­za­tion scheme dur­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with Prime Min­is­ter Ge­orge Pa­pan­dreou on the side­lines of a din­ner at the US Em­bassy in Paris yes­ter­day. Ac­cord­ing to sources, Clin­ton told Pa­pan­dreou that she be­lieved the pri­va­ti­za­tion plan was a pos­i­tive sig­nal to fi­nan­cial mar­kets and praised his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s de­ter­mi­na­tion in seek­ing to im­ple­ment a tough pro­gram of re­forms aimed at ex­tri­cat­ing Greece from the cri­sis.
