Greece : Wolfgang Schäuble, Jean-Claude Juncker...and other players

Wolfgang Schäuble, from

«Εάν η Ελλάδα δεν θέλει νέο πρόγραμμα βοήθειας, τελειώνουν όλα» λέει ο γερμανός υπουργός Οικονομικών Βόλφγκανγκ Σόιμπλε.

It seems a compromise may be possible, in spite of  Schäuble's statement.

"The European Commission will introduce a compromise proposal in which Greece should ask for a six-month period to discuss with lenders any pending issues and post-bailout plan according to a report by MNSI, citing unnamed sources. The Commission said there was no formal proposal for resolving Greece's debt problems, although talks were intensive ahead of a series of meetings of euro zone finance ministers and EU leaders in Brussels".

"Defence Minister Panos Kammenos said Greece could look to Russia or China if it failed to get a new debt deal with the euro zone. "What we want is a deal," the hardline nationalist said on television. "But if there is no deal ... and if we see that Germany remains rigid and wants to blow apart Europe, then we have the obligation to go to Plan B. Plan B is to get funding from another source. "It could be the United States at best, it could be Russia, it could be China or other countries," Kammenos added".
