We are bound by confidentiality terms, says Varoufakis

Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis on Thursday speaking to Parliament said that the public opinion cannot be informed by websites on the negotiation with the partners.

New Democracy deputy Yiannis Voutsis had earlier said that deputies are informed on the government's proposals on the Internet. "This was not our choice, we are bound by confidentiality terms. I think that this confidentiality affects the interests of Europe and that these leaks undermine the confidence in the institutions," Varoufakis said and added that the Greek government had asked several times for the proposals to be published.

Regarding Peter Spiegel's report in the Financial Times, he said that the proposals had not been leaked by the Greek government. "This sort of supposedly confidential procedure undermines the relations of the countries of the European Union," the minister underlined.
