Exclusive: Europeans tried to block IMF debt report on Greece: sources

Euro zone countries tried in vain to stop the IMF publishing a gloomy analysis of Greece’s debt burden which the leftist government says vindicates its call to voters to reject bailout terms, sources familiar with the situation said on Friday.

The document released in Washington on Thursday said Greece’s public finances will not be sustainable without substantial debt relief, possibly including write-offs by European partners of loans guaranteed by taxpayers.

It also said Greece will need at least 50 billion euros in additional aid over the next three years to keep itself afloat.

Publication of the draft Debt Sustainability Analysis laid bare a dispute between Brussels and the Washington-based global lender that has been simmering behind closed doors for months.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras cited the report in a televised appeal to voters on Friday to say ‘No’ to the proposed austerity terms, which have anyway expired since talks broke down and Athens defaulted on an IMF loan this week………

….There was no vote but the Europeans were heavily outnumbered and the United States, the strongest voice in the IMF, was in favor of publication, the sources said.

The Europeans were also concerned that the report could distract attention from a view they share with the IMF that the Tsipras government, in the five months since it was elected, has wrecked a fragile economy that was just starting to recover….

 

Muidugi tahaksid “eurooplased” süüdistada Tsiprase valitsust, millel pole euro raamistikus tegelikult mingit mänguruumi olnud.

Mina haistan selle IMF-i raporti taga USA valitsuse huvi Kreeka suhtes. USA ei taha, et Kreeka eurotsoonist lahkuks. Muidugi oli eurokraatidele see valus pauk. Kreeka võlg on jätkusuutmatu, nende jutt oli ju ikka, et Kreeka ei taha reforme läbi viia, selles on probleem. Väikesest Kreekast on saanud globaalsete geopoliitiliste huvide üks sõlmküsimusi. Kas oled märganud, kuidas meie omad nüüd Syrizast enam ei räägi kui radikaalidest? Mine tea, ei ole ehk poliitiliselt korrektne enam, kui Washington teisiti arvab. Omal neil arvamust niikuinii pole, seda võlakriisi, pagulaste jne teemadel.  Taavi Rõivas rääkis vahepeal, et Kreeka ettepanekud äratasid temas lootuse.  Tema ei saa ööd ega mütsi aru sellest võlakriisist, veel vähem suudab ta iseseisvalt olukorda lootusrikkaks või lootusetuks hinnata.

Üks on juhtunud minu arvates, Euroopa institutsioonide maine on kannatada saanud.  See võib väga vabalt euro lagunemiseni viia, ma veksleid välja anda ei tahaks, sest võimalikke stsenaariume on palju. Varsti on nii, et iga koolipoiss teab: euro on vigane süsteem, mida mingid lubjakad poliitikud iga hinna eest päästa püüavad.
