Anastasiades Backs Greece in Eurozone

NICOSIA — The President of Cyprus says he sees no risk of Greece being forced out of the group of countries that use the euro as their currency.

Nicos Anastasiades said April 7 that talks between Greece and its creditors are ongoing and that it would be in no one’s interest for Greece to leave the Eurozone.

Cyprus, which last month successfully emerged from its own three-year, 10 billion ($11.36 billion) rescue program, took a huge hit from Greece’s economic woes because of its once-close banking and financial ties to the country.

Negotiators from European Union institutions and the International Monetary Fund are meeting with Greek officials to discuss social security reforms that have triggered strong opposition in the country.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams?
