Alexis Tsipras said officially NO to Angela Merkel talking on the phone on Wednesday October 14, hours before the European Council for Migration, and while Turkey had gladly said Yes to joint patrols of Greek and Turkish Naval and Coastguard Patrols in the Aegean.

Instead of that the Greek Prime Minister insisted to ask the identification screening procedure of migrants and refugees to be held on the Turkish coast, before the migrants make the journey of life-or-death that has lead to hundreds of drownings in the Aegean waters, and which make them pay to smugglers more than 2000 euros each.

This is a proposal officially first made by the official Lesbos’ Municipality Plan for the refugees crisis Response, by the Mayor of the island Spyros Galenos, who had already made diplomatic contacts with his counterparts in Turkey, and had found them positive so far, as the official document reports .

Jean Claude Junker had also officially received the proposal early enough, by late September, but had transposed the responsibility of   assessing it as a whole to the EU Commissioner of Migration, the Greek  Dimitris Avramopoulos, who has not answered so far and plans to visit Lesbos after the EU Council on October 15, as is announced.

But the mayor of Lesbos official presented the proposal to the Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, and the Austrian Chancellor Faymann on their visit to the island on October 6, and had analysed all the steps made so far, to make possible the solution of the identification procedures to be held on the Turkish coast . And this is what Alexis Tsipras openly and bravely chose to support , even though Jean Claude Junker openly asked the Greek part to say YES to joint patrols  After the NO of the Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias on public statements, while the scenario of joint patrols was still not formally presented to the Greek government, the Greek PM Alexis Tsipras openly repeated the NO to Angela Merkel , and immediately answered to her arguments for better safeguarding EU’s external borders by proposing the screening and identification procedures to be held on Turkish coast. What will be done, remains to be seen  not   Today is the critical meeting

Refugees, FYROM and the pipeline, the topics of the meeting of @PrimeministerGR @atsipras with the U.S. @StateDept Secretary @JohnKerry

During the meeting of the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the with the US Secretary of State John Kerry, the main issues that were discussed were the negotiation of Greece within the eurozone during the recent months and the need for debt restructuring, but also, the issue of refugee flows, the Cyprus issue, the FYROM name issue, as well as the developments in Ukraine and Syria, and also the energy issues, according to the Greek PM’s office press announcement released on Thursday noon , October 1.

The meeting took place in Washington, by the presence of the Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias

US Secretary of State John Kerry stressed the strategic importance of the TAP pipeline and IGB in upgrading Greece’s role as an energy hub.

Furthermore, the US Foreign Minister expressed the US intention to support the resolution of the name issue of Skopje and the Cyprus problem.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras undelined the need of the USA support for the upgrade of the UN mechanism for the resettlement of refugees, and also for the intensification of contacts with Turkey in order to manage the refugee issue.

He also stressed the need of US contacts with Turkey for a viable solution of the Cyprus problem on the basis of UN resolutions.

Alexis Tsipras underlined to the US Foreign Minister the intention of the Greek government to resolve the name issue with a compound name with a geographical limitation for use against all, and the need of such a corresponding intention to be shown on the part of FYROM.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras did not attend the summit meeting held at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday September 29, given that FYROM was listed as the “Republic of Macedonia” rather than the provisional name recognized by the United Nations, i.e. “Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

‘Well done, you reversed the game Alexis’, comments French Press on #Greece’s PM’s article on Le Monde

Alexis Tsipras is showing the example to the European leaders by his paradigm of remaining stable on his red lines” strategic, and by resisting to the “irrational strategic of the loop”  the creditors have applied to Greece, wrote today the editor of economic newspaper « La Tribune »Romarik Gkonten, commenting on the Greek PM’s article on Le Monde and stating openly that Alexis has turned successfully the the game upsidedown

Creditors had hoped, says Gkoten, that “that the more the noose would be tightenend, and ecnomic aspuxiation of Greece would be growing, the  more Greek resistance would be reduced. But the opposite happened!

In his article Alexis Tsipras shows decisive, the author of La Tribune notes. He starts his article on Le Monde by denouncing the stalemate policies of the previous governments imposed by the troika, he remonded then the retreats accepted by his governmenet and concludes by saying clearly he retains “red lines”. “By this attitude, Gkoten underlines,  Alexis Tsipras’ has completely reversed the situation “It is now that Greece should not ‘beg’ for an agreement (…) but its the creditors that should realize the reality of the Greek decline and its economy that has” been bled from their own block. “

(…) This tactical move of Alexis Tsipras is particularly smart. From here on, it is the one who puts the rules of the game …. , the author goes on .

red lines

Greece’s solution and Europe’s future lies in the leaders’ hands, said Alexis Tsipras on his article on Le Monde :

“The lack of an agreement so far is not due to the supposed intransigent, uncompromising and incomprehensible Greek stance,” Alexis Tsipras wrote on May 31 on his article on Le Monde . “It is due to the insistence of certain institutional actors on submitting absurd proposals and displaying a total indifference to the recent democratic choice of the Greek people.”

“Greeks voted for a change by a courageous decision “

On 25th of last January, the Greek people made a courageous decision. They dared to challenge the one-way street of the Memorandum’s tough austerity, and to seek a new agreement. A new agreement that will keep the country in the Euro, with a viable economic program, without the mistakes of the past.

The Greek people paid a high price for these mistakes; over the past five years

  • the  unemployment rate climbed to 28% (60% for young people),
  • average income decreased by 40%, while according to Eurostat’s data,
  • Greece became the EU country with the highest index of social inequality.
  •  Public debt soared from 124% to 180% of GDP, and despite the heavy sacrifices of the people, the Greek economy remains trapped in continuous uncertainty caused by unattainable fiscal balance targets that further the vicious cycle of austerity and recession.

The new Greek government’s main goal during these last four months has been to put an end to this vicious cycle, an end to this uncertainty.

“Let me present the truth, on what Greece has done “

Many, however, claim that the Greek side is not cooperating to reach an agreement because it comes to the negotiations intransigent and without proposals.

Is this really the case?

Because these times are critical, perhaps historic–not only for the future of Greece but also for the future of Europe–I would like to take this opportunity to present the truth, and to responsibly inform the world’s public opinion about the real intentions and positions of Greece.

“These are Greece’s real intentions”

  • One of the key aspects of our proposals is the commitment to lower – and hence make feasible – primary surpluses for 2015 and 2016, and to allow for higher primary surpluses for the following years, as we expect a proportional increase in the growth rates of the Greek economy.

  • Another equally fundamental aspect of our proposals is the commitment to increase public revenues through a redistribution of the burden from lower and middle classes to the higher ones that have effectively avoided paying their fair share to help tackle the crisis, since they were for all accounts protected by both the political elite and the Troika who turned “a blind eye”.

  • From the very start, our government has clearly demonstrated its intention and determination to address these matters by legislating a specific bill to deal with fraud caused by triangular transactions, and by intensifying customs and tax controls to reduce smuggling and tax evasion.

  • While, for the first time in years, we charged media owners for their outstanding debts owed to the Greek public sector.

 In other words, the oligarchs who were used to being protected by the political system now have many reasons to lose sleep.

“So, let’s be clear:…”

The lack of an agreement so far is not due to the supposed intransigent, uncompromising and incomprehensible Greek stance, but due to to the insistence of certain institutional actors on submitting absurd proposals and displaying a total indifference to the recent democratic choice of the Greek people, despite the public admission of the three Institutions that necessary flexibility will be provided in order to respect the popular verdict.

GermanyG7FinanceMinisters-02338Flexibility to be shown by Institutions, was emphatically underlined by the White House

Speaking at the London School of Economics last week, Jack Lew fueled speculation with his “greater flexibility” comment that the U.S. was hintingthat the three financial institutions should renegotiate the terms under which they rescued Greece from debt and forced exit from the euro currency.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained at the regular Wsked by the instithite house Press Conference one day before Alexis Tsipras article was pubished on Le Monde, that  “That’s not in anybody’s interests. And he’s hopeful that all the parties will be able to sit down in good faith and broker an agreement that satisfies their concerns.”

Was Lew specifically referring to the IMF, Newsmax asked, and suggesting it might give Greece new terms for repayment before its latest installment is due by the end of June?

“Obviously the IMF has been a part of the conversations here,” replied President Barack Obama’s top spokesman, “These kinds of multilateral institutions such as the IMF have a role to play. The IMF has provided significant assistance to Greece and what Secretary Lew was urging was for all the parties to come to an agreement that doesn’t cause undue turmoil in the financial markets.”

“The problem with the IMF renegotiating is that there are many players involved,” Desmond Lachman, American Enterprise Institute scholar and onetime deputy policy director of the IMF, told Newsmax, “A lot of its shareholders would have to go along with any refinancing and already, a lot of them aren’t happy campers over the way the Greek bailout has gone.”

Tsipras: “Two oposite strategies for Europe’s Present and Future”

Greece is the very epicenter of conflict between two diametrically opposing strategies concerning European unity and its future, the Greek PM in his article concludes;  The first, that aims to deepen European unification , and the second that works for the beginning of the creation of a technocratic monstrosity that will lead to a Europe entirely alien to its founding principles.

The first step to accomplishing this( second strategy version)  is to create a two-spewo ed Eurozone where the “core” will set tough rules regarding austerity and adaptation and will appoint a “super” Finance Minister of the EZ with unlimited power, and with the ability to even reject budgets of sovereign states that are not aligned with the doctrines of extreme neoliberalism.

For those countries that refuse to bow to the new authority, the solution will be simple: Harsh punishment. Mandatory austerity. And even worse, more restrictions on the movement of capital, disciplinary sanctions, fines and even a parallel currency.

Solution in the Leaders’ hands: “For whom the bell tolls” (…Mr. Schauble-?-)

Europe, therefore, is at a crossroads Alexis Tsipras concluded . Following the serious concessions made by the Greek government, he emphasised, the decision is now not in the hands of the institutions, which in any case – with the exception of the European Commission- are not elected and are not accountable to the people, but rather in the hands of Europe’s leaders.
For those who want to believe that this decision concerns only Greece, they are making a grave mistake. I would suggest that they re-read Hemingway’s masterpiece, “For Whom the Bell Tolls”.

For the editor of «La Tribune», Alexis Tsipras’ article is a direct call to Angela Merkel:

“The criticism of the intransigence of creditors expressed by the Greek PM, is actually a criticism towards Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, who never hid his preference for Grexit”, La Tribune on June 1 wrote

“Gaps” on Brussels group discusssions approach, by information leaked from Brussels

ImageHandler

The “Brussels Group” of the European creditor representatives is continuing reviewing the list of the Greek reform plan of the 18 points- list , but gaps on the approach between Brussels and Athens have been expressed according to information leaked unofficially,said  Kostas Hardavelas on his radio show Sunday moning.

According to Greek TV broadcaster MEGA, the Brussels Group has to review many files, therefore it is possible to reach an agreement after the coming weekend. The discussions are still ongoing since Saturday morning when the EU officials had described as encouraging the fact that there is a commitment for a constructive conversation as to apply the political commitment to reach an agreement .

However, the EU officials have stressed that “there is still a lot of work” to do, the ANA- MPA wrote.

“We want to clarify that Greece itself must prepare the overall list of reforms in a convincing way that the commitments of the 20th February Eurogroup will be implemented”, EU sources said.

They also reiterated that the purpose of the meetings within the Brussels Group is “to discuss the Greek proposals for reforms and to help ensuring that the Greek list of reforms is reliable and complete.”

The set of reforms Greece is struggling to agree on, was sent to its EU-IMF creditors on Friday, March 27.

” There will be no recession measures, or increases of VAT rates. On the contrary, we are presenting a comprehensive programme that will allow us to have a primary surplus in 2015 of 1.5 percent of the GDP, if of course the problem of the economy’s liquidity is resolved on time.”, Greek Finance Minister Yianis Varoufakis was quoted as saying. “As you are aware, we have a noose around our necks” he added.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras stated on an interview with RealNews on Sunday that “the lack of liquidity is naturally hampering the situation, but this will be resolved once an agreement has been agreed on.”

According to Nikos Filis’ statements, the parliamentary representative of governing SYRIZA party, the list of 18 reforms stands to earn 3.5 billion euros (3.8 billion dollars) in 2015 from the measures, which include fighting tax evasion using a direct on-line system connecting businesses and tax offices, issuing licenses for the country‘s media, online gambling and VAT increases.

The Greek delegation consists of the President of the Economic Advisors Council,   Giorgos Chouliarakis, the General Secretary of Fiscal Policy, Nikos Theocharakis and Elena Panariti, the advisor of the Greek FInance Minister Yanis Varoufakis.

Ethics can not be a la carte in Europe dear Germany . You used legal tricks to avoid paying Greece for the repatriations ,emphasised Tsipras in Parliament

In his speech Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras accused, Tuesday, Germany for using legal tricks to avoid paying reparations for the Nazi occupation of Greece and said he would support parliamentary efforts to review the matter.

His comments are likely to heighten tensions between Athens and Berlin as Greece’s new, leftist government struggles to persuade its euro zone partners to renegotiate the terms of a 240 billion euro ($260 billion) bailout.

The campaign for war damages has been waged for decades both by former Greek governments and private citizens. But it has recently gained momentum due to painful economic measures imposed on Greece under the international bailout deal.The Greek government has not officially quantified its reparation claims, and Berlin has long said that it has already honored all its war obligations, including a payment of 115 million deutschmarks (59 million euros) to Greece in 1960.

But Tsipras said the 1960 deal only covered compensation for the victims of Nazi horrors, not the destruction wrought on Greece by the 1941-1944 occupation during World War Two.

The suffering caused to Greece by the Nazis is undeniable. Yet at the same time, human suffering cannot really be measured. Independent historians unanimously agree that the total economically measurable damages suffered by Greece as a result of the German occupation, in both absolute numbers as well as proportionate to the population, put Greece in fourth place after Poland, the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia., wrote Die Welt, in 2011, as Time had republished by that time

The Parliament plenum on Tuesday hold a debate on a proposal submitted by Parliament President Zoe Konstantopoulou for the re-establishment, reassembly and upgrading of the Parliament’s Cross-Party Committee to claim the German reparations and compensations, to pursue the repayment of the so-called occupation loan and the return of looted artifacts.

With her proposal, Konstantopoulou is asking for the re-establishment of the Committee which will be responsible for gathering and documenting of the indisputable historical data in an organized way that will effectively strengthen the Greek arguments for claiming what is owed to the country and get other European powers and international organizations involved in this effort.

Konstantopoulou proposed the participation of the Parliament’s President and Vice-Presidents or those filling-in for them in the Committee and in such a way that all parliamentary groups would be proportionally represented in it.

She also proposed that the members of the Committee do not get any compensation for their participation in it and that July 15, 2015 be set as a deadline for the submission of its report, while there would be the option for the renewal of its mandate and term.

According to Konstantopoulou, this is a national issue and everyone acknowledges the need for the parliament to get involved in it.

These Greeks do read the drafts before signing them! Tsipras strongly condemned the “multiple agreement draft versions” handling of the failed Eurogroup .

We don’t make not even a single step back from our promises to the Greek people, we start straight away from tomorrow on our structural reforms for the people bleeding from loans, unemployment and poverty,

Tsipras just said on the Parliamentary meeting of the governing party, SYRIZA, (where he proposed the New President of Democracy)  showing his unshakable decision to fulfill his commitments for a national rescue program, by especially focusing on the most vulnerable groups,  Alexis Tsipras emphasized on this statements, some hours after the failed eurogroup agreement of yesterday, The red lines of this government,  Alexis explained, are the No to the “extention”  of the previous Memorandum, and the availability of this government to relieve, as possible, those parts of the population who are bleeding on emergency situation from the Memorandum policies

“The replacement of the one draft with the other, on the Eurogroup yesterday”, underlined Alexis Tsipras, “is the proof  that some parts of the eurozone want to undermine any resolution between Europe and Greece.”

“There is no way back to the Greek life of humiliation,  vassalage,  and depression”, Alexis said . “We will serve our commitment to serve the dignity of the Greek citizen, which concerns any European citizen’s  dignity of today and tomorrow”.

But what’s the story with this draft , that was rejected by Athens as an ‘unacceptable’ European deal ?

“The draft was  “away from what it had been agreed so far. Under these circumstances, Athens sees no way that “there could be an agreement tonight.”

the  Greek Finance minister Varoufaksi stated at the international press briefing just after the eurogroup.

The draft  statement which Greece rebuffed suggested that the Greek authorities should give their “firm commitment to refrain from unilateral action and will work in close agreement with its European and international partners, especially in the field of tax policy, privatization, labour market reforms, financial sector and pensions.”

Greek officials grumbled that Mr Varoufakis was presented with an unacceptable text as soon as he walked into the room. This is the text

eurogroup-text-zoom

It is a “text not consistent with what has been discussed and agreed upon so far,” the Prime Minister’s office said by a non paper  :

The insistence of some circles to implement the new Greek government Memorandum is absurd and unacceptable. The implementation of the Memorandum program was off the table at the summit. Those who restore it, they are wasting their time.

“Under these circumstances there can be no agreement today.” (in.gr)

Yianis Vaoufakis underlined on his statements after the Eurogroup that he rebuffed this specific draft statement put to him by Mr Dijsselbloem as the meeting got under way . But he would have signed a text put to him before the meeting by Pierre Moscovici, the EU’s economics commissioner.

As  Varoufakis explained, Mr. Moscovici had asked to meet the Greek Finance Minister before the eurogroup meeting, where he had shown him another version of the statement on which Mr. Varoufakis had agreed .

This is the first version of the Moscovici draft

moscovici-draft-varoufakis

You can check the similarities and differences, especially on the paragraph3 of the two drafts “The Greek authorities should give their “firm commitment ….pensions” is put afterwards on the Dijsselbloem draft.

 Mr Varoufakis strongly  denounced that Mr Dijsselbloem had refused to discuss a proposal from the executive European Commission that would have given Athens a four-month breathing space in return for the new government holding off on major policy changes.

But , wow! there is second version, also, of the Moscovici draft , as Paul Mason twitted later yesterday, commenting that it was even more improved pro-Greece

The meeting broke up less than four hours after the Eurogroup of finance ministers began talks with the aim of breaking the deadlock over the Greek bailout, three weeks after left-wing party Syriza swept to power in the general election.

But this was not the first time that a multiple version of a eurogroup draft leads Greece to leave the meeting without signing it . Last Wednesday the Greek Finance Minister also refused to sign an agreement draft , “that was trapping this government to fully accept the Memorandum as it were this gov’s responsibility,” and also “trapping this government to sign an extension”, MP of the governing party Mitropoulos had stated, who is a well informed lawyer on his field, after “decoding” the first Eurogroup trap.

And now , what? “The best way forward would be for the Greek authorities to seek an extension of the program,” Mr Dijsselbloem told a news conference.

Mr Dijsselbloem spoke of a need to rebuild trust and and  he emphasized: “Would a new programme look very different? I don’t think so. The rules and regulations talk about strict conditionalities. It would still be about fiscal sustainability.”

Arriving in Brussels earlier, German finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said he was “sceptical” about the possibility of a deal. “What I have heard so far has not strengthened my optimism. It seems like we have no results so far,” he said. “I’m quite sceptical. The Greek government has not moved, apparently.”

“Good afternoon comrade!”, a Russian bridge to Alexis, by Putin himself . Help might be so crucial, indeed

 Since the first three days of Alexis Tsipras election. Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov told CNBC that Russia would consider giving financial help to debt-ridden Greece. Siluanov said Greece had not yet asked Russia for assistance, but he did not rule out an agreement between the two countries if Greece came asking.

“Well, we can imagine any situation, so if such petition is submitted to the Russian government, we will definitely consider it

Putin

Some days later, on the peak of Greece’s negotiations with European authorities, -actually, on the same day and time of the ctitical meeting of the Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis with his German counterpart Wolfgang Schaeuble, Vladimir Putin called Alexis, teasing more Berlin by his -on- the- side involvement  in the European play.

Informations leaked to several Greek media describe Alexis’ surprise when he picked up the phone,-not because he was not expecting it, ( the PM’s office was officially informed of president’s Putin intention to call the Greek PM), but because he heard Vladimir saying in Greek

“Καλησπέρα σύντροφε !” (Good afternoon, comrade), According to the same sources, Alexis answered ” Kαλησπέρα φίλε σύντροφε!” ( Good afternoon friend comrade)

Oficially, as the State NERIT Tv reported, Putin called Greek Prime Minister to invite him to Moscow on May 9th 2015, an invitation welcomed by Alexis, and which, by the way, is not an accidental invitation date for the Greek PM to visit Moscow.

Russia celebrates the 9th of May as the Victory Day to mark the capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union in the Second World War.

As reported by the Greek Media, the phone conversation took place at 1:30 pm when the Varoufakis-Schaeuble meeting was scheduled to conclude and the press conference to start.

Putin and Tsipras reportedly talked about “all issues”.

                                tsipras-putin_1-685x320

In a statement issued by the Russian Presidency, Putin and Tsipras talked about the Ukraine and “other international issues, among them the South Stream and the Turkish Stream pipelines.

Also the Russian Foreign and Defense Ministers have invited to Moscow their Greek counterparts.

As a high-ranking Greek official had  htold media, wrote te  keeptalkinggreece blog,

“Greece wants to broaden the spectrum of intense negotiations and the pressure tools towards German intransigence.

The high-ranking official said also that the conversation took place after Putin’s request, who shows strong interest for the moves of the Greek government.”
