FM Stournaras Refuses to Comment on Additional Bailouts

  • Written by 

Today, Greek Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras wouldn't comment on German colleague Wolfgang Schaeuble's statement, that the nation would require additional loans.

After exiting Maximos Mansion after a meeting with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, the Finance Minister merely commented, "We put out a statement yesterday", according to Kathimerini.

Yesterday, the Finance Ministry issued the following statement, "As is known and was accepted at the last Eurogroup, Greece's funding needs are covered until mid-2015". It has been reported that Schaeuble claimed to Focus magazine that Athens will need "limited aid" once again.

The Finance Ministry added, "For the 2015-16 period the country's financing needs will depend to a great degree on the results of the bank stress tests that will be carried out by the European Central Bank on a pan-European level". Stournaras claimed he only discussed previous acts and the upcoming monetary aid administered by the IMF.
