Speaking to reporters, during a daily briefing, government spokesman George Petalotis said there were currently several scenarios over the Greek debt but stressed that “we are only discussing a plan to extend the repayment period of the 110-billion-euro loan”.

Commenting on comments made by Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou earlier in Davos, the spokesman said the Finance minister stressed there was an idea of discussing the repurchase of Greek debt and underlined that “this is a public debate in which we do not participate”.

Petalotis stressed that Greece dismissed all pessimistic forecasts for Greece and noted that the government was moving forward with a vision and a plan to strengthen the country, the economy, the society and its institutions in order to avoid being in a similar position again in the future.
