“Greece and other EU countries should stop threatening again and again”, was the main message of the interview of the Dutch president of the Eurogroup, Jeroen Dijsselbloem.

The Dutch finance minister said in an interview Tuesday in Dutch «RTL7», that “Threats, – wherever they come from – will not help”, referring to tomorrow’s meeting of the Eurogroup in Brussels and essentially replying to Panos Kammenos.

The Greek Minister of Defence stressed that if Greece does not reach an agreement with its European partners, it will seek assistance in the US, Russia or China. According to Dijsselbloem, Eurozone countries must ignore the threats and focus on the job and tomorrow’s finance ministers conference.
