German Government officials reported that Germany will work with all Greek Partners and any New Greek government must continue to implement the mix of austerity measures and structural reforms that Greece has agreed to in exchange for its international bailouts.

The Commission economic and monetary affairs spokesman Mr. Amadeu Altafaj said that Greece must implement the reforms it agreed to under the second bailout program and the European Commission is ready to help Athens with that.

EU and IMF officials said that Greece must adhere strictly to its austerity program signalling that there was little room for a New Greek government to renegotiate the country΄s bailout terms.
