Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras on Thursday outlined his party's positions on all crucial issues, including the debt- and deficit-plagued Greek economy.

Speaking at a reception hosted in his honor by EU member-states' envoys in Athens, Samaras outlined his position on the memorandum, the reasons he called for his party to reject the plan during a Parliament vote, and his proposals for a new "economic policy mix", as he called it, stressing that "economic growth is the only way out of the crisis".

Samaras focused on the fact that the economic policy followed by the government is causing greater recession instead of reducing the deficit, while the debt increases uncontrollably.

As regards Greek-Turkish relations, the ND leader said the legal status of the Aegean, which is in compliance with international law and the Law of the Sea, should be respected.
