The Commission should continue to have supranational role, says Tsakalotos

Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos on Tuesday thanked European Commissioner for Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici and his team and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker for their role, at a meeting of all parliamentary committees attended by the commissioner and his team in Athens.

“Despite the fact that many times we had huge disagreements but also convergenced in opinion, I always felt that Pierre and his team represented the supranational (viewpoint),” he said.

Clarifying, Tsakalotos said, “It was not their policy necessarily to support Greece, but their policy was based on what is good for Europe. And since we often hear people express support for Europe, here and abroad, but actually see very few pro-Europeans, I consider it very important that the European Commission continues to express this supranational role, which benefits European peoples, and we thank you very much.”
