Grexit scenarios are part of plan by extreme European circles, says minister

The Grexit scenario exists as part of a plan by the most extreme European circles for a German-centered and fully neoliberal Europe, Productive Reconstruction Minister Panos Skourletis said, according to a Greek newspaper on Sunday.

Commenting on the result of the negotiations between Greece and its lenders, Skourletis told Kontra News that the government would have wanted a different result, but it chose this “peculiar capitulation” to avoid an even “bigger violent impoverishment of our people.”

He said “it’s obvious the government didn’t succeed”, but this doesn’t mean in any way it is abandoning the fight to create the conditions for its escape from the memorandums. “In the next period we will test our limits and our endurance as a government,” he added.
