ATHENS – Greece’s major opposition Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) has derided Prime Minister Antonis Samaras for coming back from a crucial meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel without backing for austerity relief.

“Samaras returned empty handed,” SYRIZA spokesman Panos Skourletis told Antenna TV, dismissing any notion that the Premier made gains in Berlin.

Samaras, the New Democracy Conservative leader, set out for Merkel Greece’s plans to exit from bailout deals with international lenders but SYRIZA said it was all talk and had produced no results for tax cuts or debt relief.

“For the third time… Samaras failed to live up to expectations that he himself had set,” he said adding that Merkel had made clear to the Greek PM that the debt-hit country would have to fulfill all the obligations stemming from the bailout program from the Troika of the European Union-International Monetary Fund-European Central Bank (EU-IMF-ECB).

Funding from the Eurozone ends in December 2014 and IMF aid expires in the first quarter of 2016. That has raised questions on whether a European country should be left to the IMF’s sole supervision without any EU involvement.
