PES President supports the European Parliament call for a summit on Greece



Sergei Stanishev, President of the Party of European Socialists (PES) commented on the latest situation in Greece. "The situation in the Eurozone is now critical. At the PES we are steadfast in our position that Greece’s position is in the Eurozone as also stated by Pierre Moscovici – the European Commissioner in charge of Economic and Financial affairs. The door remains open to negotiations, and we remain ready to do whatever it takes to maintain Greece as a full member of the Eurozone and of the European Union. We expect responsible and transparent actions by all."

"The Commissioners and Heads of State of the PES family, are working hard to reach a political agreement. Recognising the gravity of the situation, I fully support the calls from the European Parliament for a meeting of EU Heads of State in order to discuss and resolve these issues at the highest level."
