Speaking in the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Wednesday, Greek Prime minister Antonis Samaras said that Greece managed to conclude 67 pieces of legislation 'in a presidency that lasted only four months ' and "with a minimal budget of which not more than 40% was finally spent".
"In the last three years my country has been seriously challenged, Europe was also challenged. Some were predicting the so-called 'Grexit', the idea that Greece should exit the euro. Some were predicting that the euro itself would not make it either. We proved them wrong, Europe worked, our Union has problems but is also has the capacity to solve those problems and go ahead." Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said.
