Main opposition New Democracy party leader Antonis Samaras has addressed a letter to European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso in which he expresses his conviction that the issuance of eurobonds is the only exit from the debt crisis, not only for European Union member-states facing problems, but for the eurozone in its entirety.

In his letter, also conveyed to Euro group president Jean-Claude Juncker and EPP president Wilfried Martens, the ND leader stresses the need for the eurobond to be adopted as soon as possible by the EU as a means of supporting fiscal balance in the eurozone countries.

Government spokesman on ND leader's letter to European Commission president

Government spokesman George Petalotis in a statement expressed the hope that Wednesday's action by main opposition New Democracy party leader Antonis Samaras to address a letter to the European Commission president on the need for issuing the eurobond will now constitute a steadfast position of the ND party "for the support of this proposal of great importance."

Petalotis said that it is a proposal "that the government and prime minister George Papandreou have been developing and supporting for a long time at European level and despite the fact that only yesterday ND characterised this proposal of ours a 'communication gimmick'."

The spokesman concluded by saying "we also hope that the main opposition party, even now, will walk along the path of responsibility, something that it owes the Greek people."
