In statements to reporters as he arrived at Parliament on Thursday, Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou appealed for stability so that "the country and the economy can remain standing".
"The lending to our country by our (European Union) partners must continue without interruption so that we can get past this difficult point with the fewest possible losses for the weak," Papaconstantinou said.
Every initiative taken by the prime minister and the government was conducive to this and the government guaranteed this stability, he added.
