No default Greek or restructuring of its debts will not be announced on Wednesday an official representative of the European commissioner for monetary and financial policies Chantal Hughes. “The negotiations with the European Commission, European Central Bank and the IMF to create a support Greece has made substantial progress. Assistance to Greece will be provided,” – she assured.

The representative of the European Commission called “rating agencies and other financial market participants to act responsibly and balanced” and “not to stir up feelings of crisis.”

    Greece and Spain won’t pay back. This was a calculated Risk, and a Lesson for the Banking System. The only thing Germans can do is:
    REPOSSESS 170 Leopard 2AEX Battle Tanks from Greece, and 190 Leopard 2A6E Battle Tanks from Spain.
    U.S.A must REPOSSESS 170 F-16 Jet Fighters from Greece, … the rest is gone with the wind …forever …
    Greece must stop paying lucrative pensions with borrowed money, reform the free health care system, and cut down, 4 times the military budged.
