Papandreou Says EU Leaders Must Take Decisions on Oct. 23

October 20, 2011

Oct. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said European Union leaders needed to take “definitive” decisions on Oct. 23 when they meet on the debt crisis.

“There are serious doubts as to how much we’ll settle on decisions on Sunday,” Papandreou told his ministers today in Athens, according to an e-mailed transcript of his statements. “We believe however that these decisions are necessary and definitive. And we are ringing the alarm bell on any new delays.”

He repeated his government’s aim to remain in the euro and to press to alleviate the debt burden for Greeks.
