No New Terms for Help if Greece Meets Targets, Samaras Says

No New Terms for Help if Greece Meets Targets, Samaras Says

If Greece reports a primary surplus and sticks to its privatisation agenda, the international lenders will press forth no new terms to provide the help needed to cover bonds that mature in the near future, prime minister Antonis Samaras said, as quoted by the Athens News Agency – Macedonian Press Agency.
In an interview for a local newspaper, Samaras stressed that the 'fiscal gap' - which he estimated at around 2.5 billion euro - will not be covered by new cutbacks to wages and pensions, nor by imposing more taxes, the news agency reported.
The government's aim, the prime minister stressed, is to cover the gap through structural measures - such as curbing tax evasion.
