Der Brief Griechenlands an die Eurogruppe im Wortlaut

Hier im Wortlaut der Brief, den der griechische Finanzminister Varoufakis heute an den Präsidenten der Eurogruppe, Dijsselbloem, gesendet hat:

Over the last five years, the people of Greece have exerted remarkable
efforts in economic adjustment. The new government is committed to a broader and
deeper reform process aimed at durably improving growth and employment
prospects, achieving debt sustainability and financial stability, enhancing
social fairness and mitigating the significant social cost of the ongoing

The Greek authorities recognise that the procedures agreed by the previous
governments were interrupted by the recent presidential and general elections
and that, as a result, several of the technical arrangements have been
invalidated. The Greek authorities honour Greece’s financial obligations to all
its creditors as well as state our intention to cooperate with our partners in
order to avert technical impediments in the context of the Master Facility
Agreement which we recognise as binding vis-a-vis its financial and procedural

In this context, the Greek authorities are now applying for the extension
of the Master Financial Assistance Facility Agreement for a period of six months
from its termination during which period we shall proceed jointly, and making
best use of given flexibility in the current arrangement, toward its successful
conclusion and review on the basis of the proposals of, on the one hand, the
Greek government and, on the other, the institutions.

The purpose of the requested six-month extension of the Agreement’s
duration is:

(a) To agree the mutually acceptable financial and administrative terms the
implementation of which, in collaboration with the institutions, will stabilise
Greece’s fiscal position, attain appropriate primary fiscal surpluses, guarantee
debt stability and assist in the attainment of fiscal targets for 2015 that take
into account the present economic situation.

(b) To ensure, working closely with our European and international
partners, that any new measures be fully funded while refraining from unilateral
action that would undermine the fiscal targets, economic recovery and financial

(c) To allow the European Central Bank to re-introduce the waiver in
accordance with its procedures and regulations.

(d) To extend the availability of the EFSF bonds held by the HFSF for the
duration of the Agreement.

(e) To commence work between the technical teams on a possible new Contract
for Recovery and Growth that the Greek authorities envisage between Greece,
Europe and the International Monetary Fund which could follow the current

(f) To agree on supervision under the EU and ECB framework and, in the same
spirit, with the International Monetary Fund for the duration of the extended

(G) To discuss means of enacting the November 2012 Eurogroup decision
regarding possible further debt measures and assistance for implementation after
the completion of the extended Agreement and as part of the follow-up Contract.

With the above in mind, the Greek government expresses its determination to
cooperate closely with the European Union’s institutions and with the
International Monetary Fund in order: (a) to attain fiscal and financial
stability and (b) to enable the Greek government to introduce the substantive,
far-reaching reforms that are needed to restore the living standards of millions
of Greek citizens through sustainable economic growth, gainful employment and
social cohesion.
