Greece may need to tap its eurozone partners for an extra 10 billion euros in funding as it faces up to a cash shortfall, the country’s finance minister has said.
Yannis Stournaras said “if Greece needs additional support that will be of 10 billion euros, which is a very small amount compared with the previous memorandums.” The comments were in an interview with Greek newspaper Proto Thema Sunday and reported by press agency AMNA.
A support package would come “without new conditions,” Stournaras said, as targets were already in place until 2016. Further, there would be no haircut on Greek debt, he said.
