We will do everything to change what needs to be changed, fight against recession so that the country meets its targets, while reinforcing our country in the heart of the euro and the European Union.
Our problem is not adopting reforms, which we will do without question. It is not reaching an objective, which we will meet. But it is finding an end to the recession.
The goal of the government is to guarantee the place of Greece in the eurozone against those who want to undermine it.
The government is determined to bring the program back on track, and proceed with the privatizations.
