Speaking to reporters afterwards Samaras referred to the main points of his discussion with Fillon.
Samaras explained to the French prime minister all the points on which he disagrees on an EC/ECB/IMF troika plan, stressing that ND is unable to consent to a plan that, a year later, showed that "the recipe has failed."
The ND leader also raised the following issues:
-The need for strengthening fluidity with the participation of the European Investments Bank, so that fresh money can enter the real economy.
-The future of common agricultural policy and the consequences for Greece after the reform in 2013.
-The problems being faced by the injured Greek society.
-The immigration issue, with stress on the need for the revision of Dublin II so that the EU can also share the responsibilities.
French PM calls for 'responsible stance' by Greek political forces
French Prime Minister François Fillon called during the meeting he held on Tuesday afternoon with Greece's main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras for support by the political groups for the new structural plan that the Greek government has negotiated.
The prime minister's office issued the following press release after the meeting:
"The prime minister reminded (the ND leader) of the unimpeded support being provided for Greece by France and the other countries of the eurozone.
"He hailed the courage of the Greek people as well as the efforts of the Greek government for the country's economic and fiscal recovery.
"François Fillon stressed the need for the showing of a responsible stance by the Greek political forces, at this crucial period, something that entails in particular, the support of the main political groups for the new structural plan that the Greek government, the IMF and the European Union negotiated."
