The Greek Prime Minister was in London on his way to the US while the Eurogroup was meeting in Brussels. A phone call about the results from the meeting  sent him rushing home. When asked about the cause of the cancellation of this visit Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos vehemently denied and ridiculed comments and reports about default and bankruptsy. He claimed that Mr. Papandreou’s return was due to the need for serious decisions and important initiatives on all fronts to take the country out of this vicious circle of pressure that limits its horizon and its future.
