Greece could sell some of its islands to raise money to pay off its debt is, several members of the German parliamentarians thinks. “Those that are insolvent must sell everything they have to pay creditors. Greece owns the buildings, businesses and uninhabited islands that could be sold to pay debts,” German politician Josef Schlarmann says.

Vice Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas is not impressed with the proposal to sell some of the 6 000 Greek islands, of which only 227 are inhabited.

“I have heard the proposals. Such proposals are not appropriate at this time,” he told the German television channel ARD television.
