Austria's chancellor Faymann: "I stand on the side of the Greek people"

Werner Faymann, chancellor of Austria
In the midst of a crisis you have to stay calm. I think Greece's creditors are now more nervous than the Greek government.

The prime minister (chancellor) of Austria, Werner Faymann, sides with Greece in its debt row with creditors. Referring to creditors' demands (conditions), Fayman said in a radio interview :

"High joblessness, 30-40 per cent (with) no health insurance and then raising VAT on medicines. People in this difficult situation cannot understand that." 

Faymann added: "I stand on the side of the Greek people who in this difficult position are being proposed more things detrimental to society."
