New York.- Germany will have to decide whether it wants to support Greece or make an example of the SYRIZA-led administration, Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias said on Friday.
“Do they want to support us to have growth… or do they decide to have Greece struggle, to punish Greece and to create an example of what happens to a country that has a left government?” Kotzias told Reuters at the close of a four-day visit to the US.
In the same interview, Kotzias said Greece and its lenders needed to hammer out a deal that will spur growth in the debt-wracked nation, adding that the alternatives would lead to a lose-lose situation.
“So you are not giving a solution to Greece, you press the Greek government? What can be the solution? Golden Dawn is coming. Nobody has an interest in that, so that is what they will find a solution,” he said.
