Greek conservative leader says euro must stay09/05/2012 - 11:53:21
Greece’s conservative leader has insisted the country should remain in the euro, ahead of talks with the political opponent who wants to pull out of the financial bailout deal.
Antonis Samaras said proposals by the radical left party to withdraw from international bailout commitments would lead to “certain and immediate” catastrophe.
Mr Samaras, who came first in national elections, is to meet Alexis Tsipras as part of the radical Left leader’s efforts to form a coalition government after Sunday’s elections produced a deadlocked result. If no solution can be found, new elections will have to be held.
Mr Tsipras has said Greece should pull out of the bailout commitments. Mr Samaras says that would see it have to leave the euro.
