Scepticism over Greece debt plan

Greece struggles to regain credibility in Europe with three-year plan to cut spending.

     

    Greece's financial problems have been causing a great deal of concern across the eurozone because the country is suffering from a budget deficit that is four times the EU limit.

    The European Commission can impose fines on Greece, but such a step could only worsen the nation's financial woes.

    In an ambitious effort to reduce its debt, Athens has submitted a plan to the EC that promises to tackle the problem through spending cuts over a three-year period.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from the Greek capital, where analysts are sceptical that the government's plan will succeed.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
