Thursday's eurozone summit in Brussels will be "decisive" for the future of Greece and Europe, Greek government spokesman Elias Mossialos said on Wednesday.
Greek prime minister George Papandreou "is waging the battle to guarantee that Greece will remain standing, with hope and a prospect for its citizens," Mossialos said in a written statement.
The premier is "waging the battle for the debt to be viable and for the burdens on the citizens to be reduced, for protection of deposits and boosting of liquidity on the market", he said.
"These, for us, are the red lines that serve the national interest," the government spokesman added.
