Cred­i­bil­ity smashed

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Cred­i­bil­ity is the most im­por­tant thing that a coun­try can be known for. It is an at­tribute that takes a lot of time and ef­fort to ac­quire and just a sin­gle mis­take to lose. The gov­ern­ment’s han­dling of the pri­va­ti­za­tion of Pi­raeus Port and the prob­lems that were cre­ated with Chi­nese ship­ping gi­ant Cosco should nor­mally have led to the ouster of the of­fi­cials in­volved. The prime min­is­ter him­self had stepped in to seal an agree­ment that would have geopo­lit­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance and was of in­ter­est to the high­est ech­e­lons of the Chi­nese lead­er­ship. It is ab­so­lutely out­ra­geous that some­one at­tempted to change the agree­ment in such a way. The dam­age to Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras’s and the coun­try’s cred­i­bil­ity is enor­mous.
