New Government Comments on Submarine Issue

Assistant Minister of Defence Beglitis gave his first interview to Pireus Channel 1 in which he covers the ongoing dispute (see here) with German submarine builder HDW.

See here for a transcript in Greek. When asked on his opinion and whether he believed the German stance amounted to blackmail the Assistant Minister responded that he indeed could use that word to describe the situation. He also said he believed the practices used by the German side are not in good faith.

Beglitis announced that next week HDW will be called on to carry on negotiations regarding the subs with the new government.

HDN note: We hope that the new government can finally find a solution with HDW. The time is now. The German side have made a gesture of good will (see here).
