Greece-USA: Varoufakis in Washington DC; Tsipras to Moscow; Contradictory Statements




 Impersonating Yani?
Buskers in Washington DC

Update, Financial Times - "Frustrated officials want Greek premier to ditch Syriza far left"

Update, Mignatiou, Measures that need to be taken, Lagarde

Update Spiegel Online- "Athen solle mit den Geldgebern kooperieren".

Update, Al Jazeera: - "There is a game of poker going on between German and Greek governments," Stephen Haseler, the director of the Global Policy Institute, told Al Jazeera. "Greece says if they don’t get loans from you, they will default, but don’t want to carry out social welfare and wages cuts Germany still demands. None of the sides backs down."



Update 2, Reuters - Divisions, public pressure push Greek PM into tightrope act

Update, Ta Nea - Πληροφορίες του Γερμανικού Πρακτορείου Ειδήσεων (dpa) ότι το Διεθνές Νομισματικό Ταμείο ζητά από την Ελλάδα περικοπές σε συντάξεις και αύξηση του ΦΠΑ επικαλούνται γερμανικά ΜΜΕ.... Όπως αναφέρει, το ΔΝΤ ζητεί περικοπές συντάξεων, ιδίως στις πρόωρες συντάξεις, καθώς και αύξηση του ΦΠΑ, την ίδια στιγμή που οι ευρωπαίοι πιστωτές της Ελλάδας είναι πιο «ευέλικτοι».

Der Spiegel Online: A worldwide search for money -"Besuche in Washington und Moskau: Jetzt geht Athen weltweit auf Geldsuche"

Will Greece be able to pay IMF? Der Spiegel

Reuters report  - "Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis will meet International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde in Washington on Sunday to discuss a set of planned reforms that Athens hopes will unlock much-needed bailout funds. The unexpected meeting would be 'an informal discussion' on Greece's reform plan, the finance ministry and the IMF said. Varoufakis is also expected to meet U.S. Treasury officials on Monday".

Maybe we'll bump into him downtown!
