Syriza minister vows to veto TTIP
That was back in February 2015
Georgios Katrougkalos, the country’s deputy minister for administrative reform, promised his government would block the deal.
Speaking to EurActiv Greece, Katrougkalos said:
I can assure you that a Parliament where Syriza holds the majority will never ratify the deal. And this will be a big gift not only to the Greek people but to all the European people.
If TTIP is to become a reality, it will need to pass a unanimous vote of the European Council and then be ratified by all 28 member states.
Could add a whole new dimension to the Greek bail out/bail in/ troika takeover?
I wonder what the EU definition of ‘debt sustainability’ actually is…..
