Governor of Athens, Syriza's Rena Dourou told John Humphrys: "The austerity policies from the last five years have not given a solution to the Greek debt". On negotiating with the level of debt with the EU Ms Dourou said: "We are going to pay our debt...sometimes I'm thinking this is the easy way to leave the European Union, but we follow the hard way because we know we are fighting the name of the Greek society and the name of the European Union".
