Samaras will meet with Juncker in the afternoon
At 5.30 pm today, PM Antonis Samaras will meet with Eurogroup president Jean-Claude Juncker, who arrives in Greece at 1:00 in the afternoon.
The meeting is very important, as the prime minister will present the measures taken by the Greek government and attempt to persuade Juncker about his determination to meet the commitments of the country.
Samaras will also raise the issue of the fiscal adjustment extension. The Eurogroup president has repeatedly distanced himself from statements against our country and believes that there should be no departures from the Eurozone.
After being convinced of the Greek side’s intentions, he can influence the overall climate in view of the October summit and Eurogroup meetings that will be crucial for the disbursement of the next loan tranche.
After the meeting at Maximos Mansion, Juncker will visit the Acropolis Museum and in the evening Samaras will host a dinner in his honor.
The PM, who takes off for Berlin tomorrow, did not convene a meeting of political leaders, wanting to show that he takes responsibility for the policy to be followed from now on, and also to avoid any disagreements on the package of measures that would have had a negative impact.
