Nicolas Sarkozy: the adoption of Greece in the eurozone was a mistake

French President Nicolas Sarkozy expressed his position on the adoption of Greece in the eurozone in 2001 year. He believes that this was a mistake, since the Greek economy was not ready for it. According to him, before joining the single European currency, the Greek authorities provided false data on the state of the country's economy. "In recent months, we are paying for this 2001 decision of the year," he said.


At the same time, the French leader emphasized, the decisions of the Brussels summit of the European Union, at which a new plan for helping Greece was approved, have truly historical value. "If there hadn’t been this agreement last night, not only Europe, but the whole world would have suffered a catastrophe," he said. Nicolas Sarkozy is convinced that the failure of the summit would lead to the unthinkable - the bankruptcy of Greece.

The eurozone countries had no choice in the current situation, given that Athens in fact could not pay its debts. At the same time, the Greek authorities can rely on the confidence of the whole of Europe in the current difficult conditions, ITAR-TASS reported.

    Well, think about it. Obul Greece The European Union manenko and immediately the screech rose "collapse ... collapse ...".
    Russia at one time during the Union pulled how many of its own, and the Union of how many aliens - and no one yelled.
    And these from the Greeks alone - and already ached (with Sarkozy in the forefront, as usual).

    Here Kolya is right. They don’t do a damn thing, they sit all day in coffee houses and dance sertaki,

    Under the new law, 40 years are needed for full retirement, not 35, as before. In life was! What did they climb into this EU?

    The European Union can now be fully called the USSR with which we wholeheartedly congratulate them. And if we can help them a bit, then in 5 years we’ll turn them into the CIS

    Funny fuss in the EU is happening! The guys, like at a card table, strive to deceive each other, but everyone builds a friendly (and most importantly - smart!) Face. In fact, they all no longer know how to get out of the economy and, therefore, it is time to appoint (usually the weakest) the first to eat. They themselves banned Greece in the slightest way to preserve production (You have a good climate! You will prosper due to tourism, and we will help, in which case ...!), And now thoughts have come to throw the weak one into the sea! This is called - European unity and consolidation! You need to memorize such fortels ... And the EU also has a new mod - to beg for money from those whom they recently wanted, but beg for something so beautiful! With the dignity of the English lord and the grace of the French marquise at the same time! And, without blushing, they promise to return when they can ... Or they offer to buy their candy wrappers to maintain and increase their stabilization fund.

    The nightingale sang! I would have thought how we pulled Asian republics from the Middle Ages under the Union. And how did they repay us for this.

    Remember what Greece was like in ancient times! And to what has sunk. And why.

        slanhomophobia? I sincerely do not understand this term - what are they afraid of fagots? They need to be wet with legal means, and not be afraid.

        But seriously, pederasty is not the only factor in degradation. The main reason for the fall of Greece was the internal war. They shared the unkilled deer, and killed them themselves.

        And now the population of Greece has a very weak relation to what was in ancient Greece. Those. she cannot recover in her former mode in principle.

    However, they made a mistake with Greece, well, they’ll take Georgia and understand nothing - they’re not mistaken. Better contain the Greeks.

    He believes that this was a mistake, since the Greek economy was not ready for this.

    Sarkozy forgot to mention that the creation of Europe was not an economic project, but a political one. They gathered all the countries together under the roof of Germany and France, and therefore Europe is now so different in economies like Estonia and Italy.
