EU must push growth in Greece, not only terms, former Austrian chancellor Vranitsky says

The European Union must also make efforts to promote growth and create prospects for the future in Greece, not just set terms that the Greeks must fulfill, former Austrian chancellor Franz Vranitzky said in an exclusive interview with the ANA-MPA in Vienna on Wednesday
“We must think with the Greeks, for the Greeks, in order to give them a prospect for the future,” Vranitzky said, noting that the EU must also provide funds for measures and programmes to boost growth in Greece.
Greece’s EU partners can ask Greeks to make efforts only if they are themselves willing to really support them, said the Austrian politician, who served as Austria’s chancellor from 1986 until 1997.
Vranitzky currently owns a house in Ierapetra, Crete and spends several months each year in Greece, saying his time there is a “dream vacation”.
