FinMin Varoufakis: ‘Our goal is a final and comprehensive solution’

The Greek government’s goal in the negotiations was to convince its partners to finally shift away from a mistaken economic policy – something that they were unable to admit for political reasons – and find a lasting solution to the country’s problems, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said on Tuesday.

Speaking at an international economic conference taking place in Athens, Varoufakis also underlined that Greece must finally press ahead with the reforms needed to kickstart growth.

Greece’s finance minister repeated that getting the loan tranche could not be an end in itself and that Greece’s best interests were not served by lurching from bailout to bailout, or from memorandum to memorandum, while he stressed the need for a “final and comprehensive solution to the Greek issue”.
