Fiinance ministry categorically rejects press reports claiming that Tsakalotos questioned Greece’s place in Eurozone

The finance ministry categorically rejected on Tuesday press reports claiming that Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos questioned Greece’s place in the Eurozone during a debate in a parliamentary sub-committee on the country’s debt.

According to the press release the minister “never questioned whether Greece can survive in this Eurozone”, but simply stated what he had been proposing since SYRIZA was in the opposition: that there should be a discussion on Eurozone’s architecture. “He’s not questioning the country’s path in the euro,” the ministry said.
“The issue of Eurozone’s architecture has also been raised in his speeches abroad,” it added.
