"Either they do not want an agreement or they serve specific interests in Greece", Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said to his colleagues, shortly before departing for Brussels, referring to the insistence of certain institutions not to accept equivalent measures.
"The non-acceptance of equivalent measures is unprecedented. Neither in Ireland nor in Portugal. Nowhere! This strange stance may be due to two reasons. Either they do not want an agreement or they serve specific interests in Greece," Tsipras said, according to a government source.
... a government [previous ND-PASOK] official speaks publicly about interests that actually the Troika serves. Specifically, Michalis Papadopoulos, Deputy Transport Minister said among other things:
“The troika has certain obsessions that are groundless and are part of the way of thinking created by its technical teams,” he told Athens 984 radio station. “They are like a corner shop, where everyone who passes leaves something and then the troika picks up on it and says: “Ah, yes! You have to do this as well”.”
“There are institutional bodies, Greek and foreign, who pass by the troika and say: “Do this as well”,” said the deputy minister. “The troika has adopted a way of thinking that involves them serving particular interests.”
