I had already the opportunity to congratulate the leader of the winning party they have now the responsibility to form a government. We expect this government to be formed fifthly so that we can discuss with the Greek authorities about how we can help Greece. So that Greece can turn back to growth. We work on the bases for the adjustment program that was agreed between Greece and the Euro area and I want to send a clear message to the Greek citizens. We stand by you, we consider Greece a member of the euro area and of the European family and we are ready to work with you and support in whatever way necessary so that we can return to growth and jobs in Greece. I believe this is the will of the Greek people and this is certainly the will of the European union. We believe this is the way to improve conditions and also to show that the euro area and the European union stand united. 00:01:10
