Latvia is ready to block the new EU-Greece agreement on the allocation of another loan to Athens

59
Quite unexpectedly, the role of a probable blocker of the new agreement between the European Union and Greece on the allocation of the original 7 billion euros, and a total of more than 80 billion euros, is ready to assume ... Latvia. During the meeting of the Latvian government, Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma said that the official Riga would block the EU-Greece agreement on the allocation of new loans as soon as the settlements of Riga and the actions of Athens during the upcoming talks show that the Greeks are unable to pay their debts.

At the same time, Straujuma added that the path of Greece’s return to reforms will only be a long one, and one should not expect the next three years that the Greek economy will grow.

From Latvia to the negotiations of Greece and the EU’s creditors, Finance Minister Janis Reirs will go, to whom Straujuma entrusts to block the agreement if the negotiations go “not in that vein”. Portal Delphi quotes the prime minister of the Latvian government:

Reyrs can use the veto if the negotiations do not meet the conditions that have been agreed. Therefore, today the Cabinet of Ministers decided that Reirs will regularly inform the government about the progress of negotiations and the fulfillment of its obligations by Greece. Latvia wants Greece to send a clear signal that reforms are underway and the loan will be returned.


The tax policy department of the Ministry of Finance of Latvia, as its representatives note, “is concerned about the need to solve Greek economic problems at the expense of Latvian taxpayers”. Proceeding from this, one can say that Greece is teaching a lesson to Latvia too - to Latvia, which at one time, being a part of the USSR, was used to receiving almost completely free aid from the center, against the background of which it was behind the scenes announcing “occupation”. Now, Latvia itself has to finance the economy of the “brothers” in a union, only in a completely different union ...

      This is the "Achilles' heel" of the European Union - any country even meaningless in economic terms can block the adoption of any decision and destroy any union!

        This is not the "Achilles' heel" of the European Union, it is a reminder of "equality and consensus." For "approvals," you can also shake off additional funding from the EU. Not all Germans feed the Greeks alone. Traders in general.

          But what if the Germans block the agreement with Greece, or does Latvia have a real economy ?? The word of Latvia should be the last, and even then, if asked, the country's budget consists of almost 36% of EU subsidies, so that the issue of debts will soon also become an edge for Latvia .

            Of course, Latvia is not the country to decide something (at one time Greece gave the go-ahead to these former Soviet Republics to join NATO into the EU) so ... it's just a price hike! Greece for Europe for NATO is more important than the whole of the Baltic states taken.

          I wonder what game do you mean? Any EU Member can block any agreement concluded on behalf of the EU, all decisions are made collectively. This is the principle on which Europe is organized, although of course Germany can bend any member, but still the decision must be universal

        The situation will simply fly away! But if you think about the Greek prospect, when don’t give the shares. It’s clear to everyone that giving the Greeks money is the same as throwing them away. Any Eurosheater from jealousy of guano comes out. Ha ha ha you read the comments on this on the crest of sites!

      The Greeks have already received help more than once! And what did they do? Just eaten this help! How can a person from abroad find a job in a country with an unemployment rate of more than 25%? My ex-wife has been working there for several years! I changed five jobs without any problems and a long search! Greeks themselves do not want to work !!! So what? Do you offer to feed and dress parasites forever? Do you even know that the Greeks have already received more than 140 million euros of help! They have a minimum wage less than unemployment benefits! In short, if you so want to help the Greeks, then help yourself !!!

        This is already so clear, and everything is quite logical here, Latvia, like many other countries, will never become EU countries, physically it is possible to sign agreements, but they won’t change their attitude to themselves. Greece is a different matter and location and a great past history and present, it has everything connected with Europe. Naturally, they will help Greece, and not some kind of Latvia.

    But I would look at that. After all, it is clear that probalts to the EU belong purely nominally. In fact, these are the US state subsidies. Through which America has the opportunity to steer the EU. Well, the fact that Greece just ate and eats all the money, it seems everyone understands. The only toad is pushing the country out of the EU without having beaten off its grandmothers. so I personally think that the latest agreements will lead to the fact that the country will quickly be sold out and expelled from the EU.

    "The official Riga will block the agreement between the EU and Greece on the allocation of new loans, as soon as the calculations of Riga and the actions of Athens during the upcoming negotiations show that the Greeks are unable to pay off their debts."

    And regarding ukRuiny, what do the calculations show? Maybe this is supposedly a "state", to pay off its debts, and even wage a war against its "people"?
