Scicluna: Different levels of scepticism on Greece

Finance Minister Edward Scicluna said before another eurozone finance ministers' meeting on Greece this morning that there were different levels of scepticism within the eurogroup about the recovery package presented by the Greek government.

He pointed out that just over a week ago, the Greek governemnt and then the Greek people rejected a package of proposals, and now the Greek government had come up with new proposals which would be even tougher and cost more.

The new package, he said, had many uncertainties. There were doubts, and it was therefore unfair to say that particular countries were in favour or against. What there were were different levels of scepticism.

The finance ministers yesterday discussed the latest Greek proposals for nine hours but were unable to reach an agreement. CNN during the night reported that Finland, Slovakia, Estonia and Malta were opposing a new bailout.
