BERLIN, January 5. /TASS/. The German government expects that Greece will go ahead with a policy of austerity measures and reform even if the chief opposition party, Coalition of Radical Left Forces (SYRIZA), emerges the winner in the forthcoming January 25 parliamentary election, deputy government spokesman Georg Streiter said on Sunday.
“In the past Greece stood by its liabilities. The German government proceeds from the understanding that the country should comply with them further on,” he said.
Earlier, Der Spiegel magazine quoted government sources as saying that Chancellor Angela Merkel and Finance Minister Wolfgang Scheauble no longer ruled out that crisis-stricken Greece might leave the euro area. Der Spiegel said the German authorities saw such a development as almost inevitable, if Athens after the parliamentary elections dropped the policy of reform and public spending cuts.
