Greek PM criticizes Argentine economy
Amid attempts to climb out of a six-year-long recession, Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras yesterday claimed his country will not follow the path of an Argentina mired in economic troubles more than a decade after its infamous 2002 default. “In a few years, I believe this is going to be a bad memory. If you want the opposite example of Argentina, a very rich country that went bankrupt back in 2002, 12 years later, today, they are still in a crisis, on the verge of a collapse again, much more suffering and no hope — this is what we did not want to happen in Greece,” he said.
