Opposition Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.OS) leader George Karatzaferis warned that the future of Europe, not just the future of Greece, is at stake during a March 25 EU summit, in comments after meeting with Prime Minister George Papandreou on Tuesday.

"The question is whether all of Europe will become a German province," he said, clarifying that he will support the government only if it adopts a "policy of offense".

Karatzaferis stressed that the "defensive game" played by the governments of PASOK and New Democracy (ND) was ineffective, and that “we have known only defeats and downgradings”.
