The prime minister (chancellor) of Austria, Werner Faymann, sides with Greece in its debt row with creditors. Referring to creditors' demands (conditions), Fayman said in a radio interview :
"High joblessness, 30-40 per cent (with) no health insurance and then raising VAT on medicines. People in this difficult situation cannot understand that."
Faymann added: "I stand on the side of the Greek people who in this difficult position are being proposed more things detrimental to society."
