As the EU and the ECB back Greece into a corner yet again, Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has issued the following statement and a full copy of his presentation to the Eurogroup meeting.
If there is a default at the end of June followed by Grexit (meaning Grexpulsion), then no-one can seriously claim that Varoufakis and Syriza did not try in every way to prevent it. Indeed, one wonders if compromise was ever possible given how it now appears that the technocrats heading the ECB and the EU care nothing for Greece and surprisingly little for the future of the EU itself. But Syriza should also beware that they do not compromise too much; for that would be the worst defeat of all.
The only antidote to propaganda and malicious ‘leaks’ is transparency. After so much disinformation on my presentation at the Eurogroup of the Greek government’s position, the only response is to post the precise words uttered within. Read them and judge for yourselves whether the Greek government’s proposals constitute a basis for agreement.
