A lack of EU solidarity
« on: Thursday, 17 January, 2019 @ 11:51:34 »
EU showed “lack of solidarity” toward Greece during crisis, says Juncker
A word of truth a bit too late…

Speaking at an event in Strasbourg marking the 20th year since the launch of the euro currency, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Tuesday expressed regret that the European Union had not shown sufficient solidarity with Greece when the crisis erupted.

According to Juncker, the austerity policies were not imposed in the eurozone to “punish” workers and the unemployed but because it was necessary to carry out structural reforms. Nevertheless, he added, he was sorry that so much emphasis had been given to the influence of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
