Karamanlis breaks silence - Warns that “unwise choices" will have irreversible consequences on Greece

In a very rare public statement, former Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Saturday called on Greece to remain in the Eurozone. The former premier stressed that Greece's interests require participation in the Eurozone, adding that “unwise choices" will push the country "into an adventure” with unpredictable and possibly irreversible consequences.

Karamanlis, who has kept silent since he was overthrown by George Papandreou in 2009, underlined that the existence of imperfections within the EU do not take away from the value of this strategic orientation.

It will come as a surprise to many, but Karamanlis has been working closely with ND leader Antonis Samaras since early Saturday morning, or right after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' announcement for a referendum. As such, he held a long conversation with the President of the Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos and presently he is in close contact with other European heads of state. As always, Karamanlis is using his diplomatic charisma to defuse tension across Europe.

The story is still developing. Please check back later for more.
