Greek gov’ts cut pen­sions

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Ger­man Fi­nance Min­is­ter Wolf­gang Schaeu­ble has in­sisted in an in­ter­view that suc­ces­sive Greek gov­ern­ments were to blame for the pen­sion cuts that have been en­forced in Greece. The Ger­man min­is­ter stressed in an in­ter­view with Ta Nea news­pa­per on Satur­day that the Greek gov­ern­ments are the ones that de­cided the mix of poli­cies needed to achieve the coun­try’s tar­gets. He also said that the In­ter­na­tional Mon­e­tary Fund will never be in­volved again in a pro­gram to res­cue a Euro­pean coun­try. Re­fer­ring to his Greek coun­ter­part Eu­clid Tsakalo­tos, he said they com­mu­ni­cate fre­quently, while he dis­missed his flam­boy­ant pre­de­ces­sor Yia­nis Varo­ufakis as some­one he no longer can “take se­ri­ously.”
