On Tuesday Greece’s government spokesperson, Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said in a briefing that the country will not agree to what he called “illogical” demands of the IMF to further austerities after the end of the bailout program in 2018.

Reuters reported that Tzanakopoulos made clear that Greece will not agree to the IMF’s demands, stating “The government’s position is clear and it has been expressed categorically…our aim is to not yield to illogical demands by the International Monetary Fund, which insists on legislating precautionary (austerity) measures after the program ends.”

“The government is aspiring for a deal that will lead to the country’s inclusion in the (ECB’s) quantitative easing program,” he said.

Tzanakopoulos also commented that Greece plans to hire Rothschild & Co as an advisor regarding future plans to release government bonds.
