Spain’s Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy has joined many of Europe’s most influential political leaders, including David Cameron and Angela Merkel, stating that Greece must ‘honour its commitments’ and pay its debts.
In a radio interview this weekend Rajoy stated that if Spain and other Eurozone countries are paying their debts then Greece must do the same. He went on to say he believed the Spanish economy got over the worst of its problems and was now improving. He stressed that he wanted Greece to stay within the European Union – and that was better for Europe as a whole.
Greece has got until the end of June to come up with a plan, together with European and international creditors, to solve its current economic crisis. Since Left-Wing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was voted into government on an ‘anti-austerity’ campaign, re-payment of Greece’s vast national debt has been in question – as has its ability to stay within the European Union.
