Greek Minister Loverdos Says Country Belongs in Europe, Euro

Greek Health Minister Andreas Loverdos said Greece needs national consensus among its political parties now more than ever.

“The issue is to save what we can save,” Loverdos told reporters in Athens today before joining a Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister George Papandreou. “The country needs an understanding between its political powers, ten times more than before.”

“We need to keep the country where it belongs, in Europe and in the euro,” he said.
