PM Samaras: Greece does not need additional loans

Prime Minister Antonis Samaras rules out any discussion on the possibility of a third memorandum in an interview with Real News Sunday newspaper.

Samaras stated that the country does not want additional loans and that the troika will leave after the end of the current programme adding that all the above are the result of the debt restructuring and the good course of the plan to exit to the markets and of the fiscal consolidation which will allow tax reliefs to start from this year as well as the increase of the arrangements for the loans.

The prime minister said “Greece does not need additional loans! And would not sign a ‘new memorandum’ for money it does not need. After the end of the programme the troika will leave, as it happened in Ireland and in Portugal. What matters is the programme to end and to become again a ‘normal country”.
