Samaras: Ireland has shown us the way back to growth, markets

Ireland is an example of how Greece can overcome the ongoing debt crisis, Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said Thursday after a meeting with his Irish counterpart Enda Kenny in Athens.

“Achieving an end to the crisis does not mean walking on an endless road,” Samaras said adding that Ireland had shown the way back to growth and to the markets.

Speaking during a joint press conference, Kenny said the two men had discussed banking union and youth unemployment.

Ireland is currently holder of the rotating EU presidency.
