[The finance minister’s blog: Yanis Varoufakis: thoughts for the post-2008 world]
Published on Feb 12, 2015
Greece’s new left-wing finance minister says his government wants a “rational discussion” with the country’s creditors.
Yanis Varoufakis told Newsnight that contrary to what had been reported he had held a “very fruitful meeting” with Jeroen Dijsselbloem, head of the eurozone group of finance ministers in Athens on Friday.
But he said Greece was not prepared to carry on trying “to enforce an unenforceable programme” of austerity measures.
