Greece remains a country which is credible to its creditors, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou has claimed.

"If we had wanted to default, we would have done that. That would have been a decision we had made initially. But we made another decision, a decision not to default," he said.

"And this decision shows that Greece is a credible country, credible to its creditors, and we have been able to be on target with our programme, which shows that we can get through these difficult times and show the world that we can be successful," he added.
