Greek Foreign Minister Stavros Lambrinidis reiterated here that Athens has returned "up to the last euro of the money it has received and it will continue to do so until the end of this programme, with a very high interest rate."
Addressing an event at the Polish Institute of International Affairs in Warsaw on Tuesday, Lambrinidis underlined that Greece has made a "super-human and unprecedented effort in the entire European Union in order to return to responsibility, both for its own benefit and the benefit of its partners."
He pointed out that in recent years, "two fundamental values of the European Union are under attack: responsibility and solidarity. The responsibility that each member of the same family should demonstrate towards its partners but also the solidarity that the Union as a whole should demonstrate towards each one of its member-states."
