    Prime Minister Antonis Samaras met with visiting President of Lithuania and outgoing president of the EU Council Dalia Grybauskaite at the Maximos Mansion on Wednesday.

    The talks focused on Greece's presidency in EU in the first six months of 2014.

    Referring to the Greek economy, the prime minister underlined Greece's progress not only in the fiscal adjustment as well as in the restructuring reforms. "We have already met our fiscal adjustment targets and we have proceeded even further given that from 2013 we will have a primary surplus," noted Samaras and called the state budget, that was ratified last Saturday from the Greek parliament, as the state budget of recovery and hope.

    Samaras set as target in the next six months the strengthening of the social policy as well as the security in Europe with deepening and in-parallel the promotion of policies against unemployment.

    On her part, the Lithuanian president praised the Greek government's policy of responsibility to do whatever necessary against the economic crisis and congratulated the Greek people for their sacrifices. Moreover, Grybauskaite estimated that Greece will successfully meet EU presidency's duties that will contribute to the country's growth.

    Government Vice President and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos and Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras were also present in the meeting.
