Varoufakis: We will not sign an extension of the crisis

Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, speaking to radio station “Sto Kokkino”, on Monday appeared optimistic about the next day of the interruption of the negotiation.

“Today is a very nice day, we have finally come to the moment of clarity. Yesterday Greece said enough is enough, it is now the Europeans’ turn to take decisions,” he said.

“Today is a good day because things have cleared out. The Eurogroup’s message has been clear since the beginning; either you sign the memorandum or the country goes on the rocks. We began a negotiation process. At last we arrived at the point where Europe must decide whether it is interested in the Europe of the peoples. By no means will we sign an extension of the crisis. We do not have a mandate from the Greek people to sign an agreement that will release the next tranche and continue indefinitely the recession,” he added.
