Schulz: A new government is irresponsible

The President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz (SPD) has been shown alarmed about the decision of the Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, no longer cooperate with the troika of the EU Commission, ECB and IMF and to end the ongoing utility prematurely.

If the Greek government really does not want to cooperate with donors on the existing basis, then I think that is irresponsible," Schulz told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAS).

In the coalition government, there is little willingness to continue to meet the Greeks, the margin is largely exhausted, and a debt cut out of the question, so Barthle. "The European treaties are clear: We provide emergency loans, but we cannot deliver another country. All aids shall be conditioned and controlled. This will be the Bundestag all decisions are based lay "Barthle said.

Barthle: Greece chooses "Dirty Exit"

Furthermore, the budgetary spokesman for the Union faction in the Bundestag, Norbert Barthle (CDU), criticized the decision of the Greek government to end the European utility prematurely and no longer work with the troika sharp. "If the Greeks did not take the final installment of our aid package and do not fulfill their obligations, is that, Dirty Exit ', a flagrant violation of the agreements. I then see no basis for a follow-up program, "said the FAS Barthle.

Schulz visited the new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Thursday as the first representative of the European Union. He moved towards the F.A.S. an act confident Royal conclusion of his two-hour conversation with Tsipras: "I left with the feeling that you can talk to the Greek government and need to talk, that you can move them to compromise, but that there are no guarantee's Athens. The situation is fragile, but not without opportunities. "The unilateral announcements of the Greek finance minister did not fit into this picture, Schulz said. He added: "Maybe Alexis Tsipras again brings order into his government."

Weber: Sweet poison, of populism

The Chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament, the CSU politician Manfred Weber, called on the leaders of European Socialists to clearly distance themselves from Tsipras. "I warn SPD leader Gabriel, President Hollande and Prime Minister Renzi about to be seduced by the sweet poison of Tsipras' populism. You have to give a clear commitment to reform course now and a hard boundary against Extreme show, "Weber told FAZ.NET. A few years ago Europe Austria has assigned a spell because at that time the FPÖ helps rule. Now should not be looked away just because the left led government, Weber continued.

Weber reiterated business foundation for further aid to Greece remains the formula: Solidarity against reforms. Deviate from it, whether for taxpayers in the other euro countries that saved Athens from bankruptcy, unacceptable. "Just Italians, Spanish or Irish, who have enough of their own challenges, certainly not pay for the unrealistic campaign promises of Tsipras," Weber said.
