Time is running out but door remains open



Commenting on the situation in Greece Sergei Stanishev, PES President said: "We are critically short on time. But doors must remain open to dialogue and negotiations. Nothing is more important in this key moment than an agreement on the Greek situation which would keep Greece in the euro, and protect the Greek people the dramatic consequences of leaving it. The Greek people have made enormous sacrifices during the last five years, it would be a real tragedy if these were made in vain.

We have always been and will always be for the unity of the Eurozone. A deal was within reach. We therefore call for urgent action at the highest level from all sides to reach a compromise."
