Greek Government Criticizes EU, IMF Demands for Asset Sales

Greece’s government criticized demands from the European Union and International Monetary Fund for sales of state assets to raise 50 billion euros ($67 billion).

“The behavior of the representatives of the EU, IMF and ECB during yesterday’s press conference was unacceptable,” government spokesman George Petalotis said in a statement today, referring to the European Central Bank. “The only agent responsible for these decisions is the Greek government. We take orders only from the Greek people.”
