QUITE RIGHTLY: (From a commentary in Kathimerini) «(US Ambassador John) Peurifoy was quite right in telling Kathimerini’s New York correspondent that the solution to the political problem in Greece should be solved by the Greek people and that according to American policy, the US would not get involved in Greece’s domestic affairs. Quite rightly, since that is what is required by democratic order, of which the Americans are faithful observers. It would be irrational in the extreme for any Greek to have any objections to this. The Americans are not involved and should not be involved in our domestic affairs, but no one can deny them the right to observe, to show an interest and to have an opinion on issues related, directly or indirectly, to the use of the $300 million they have put at our disposal. (…) As part of that right, it is natural for them to have an opinion on the political issue which considerably affects the economy.
