"The return to the market is just a tool. The aim is fair growth," Minister for Digital Policy and Telecommunications Nikos Pappas said on Sunday in an interview with the Athens Macedonian News Agency (ANA).

Pappas reiterated the government΄s proposal of linking debt repayment to growth: "Growth and job creation are a priority, and debt must not be a hindrance to growth," he underlined adding that the return to the markets is just a tool to achieve fair growth.



The Greek minister said it would not be a surprise to him if the solution is found at the EU summit on June 22. As he explained it would not be the first time that the Eurogroup cannot solve problems.



Pappas underlined that one of the government΄s assets is its international coalitions.



Asked whether the negotiations are related to the German elections, he said that "a state, a partner cannot wait for the conclusion of a multi-long electoral procedure in another EU member state. Let alone, it cannot accept the export of a political crisis."
