Greece 'will emerge more viable'

PM says country determined to recover from debt crisis, vowing "never again".

    George Papandreou, the prime minister of Greece, is a man at the very centre of the crisis hitting the euro currency.

    As his country struggles to implement sweeping budget cuts, other European nations are battling to prevent Greece's debt crisis from spreading to other nations.

    Papandreou says Greece will eventually emerge from the crisis, which has required the European Union and the International Monetary Fund to provide a $136bn bailout, with a more viable economy.

    In an interview with Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips in Athens, Papandreou said his country is determined to say "never again" to entering such a crisis.
