Greece has taken over the presidency of the European Union, vowing that its efforts to recover from six years of recession and two huge financial bailouts, are about to bear fruit.

Greek ministers will chair EU meetings for the next few months in the run-up to European elections in May.

Chris Morris reports from Athens.

Sort of like putting Iran or Syria in charge of the UN human rights commission (which has happened).
