The German government is confident that Greece will stick to bailout terms set out by the EU and the IMF, a spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel has said.

Georg Streiter refused to comment on reports that Angela Merkel believes the eurozone is now robust enough to cope with a potential exit of Greece, should the looming general election in Greece reignite the eurozone crisis.

Mr Streiter said that Greece had fulfilled its obligations in the past, and that the German government “assumes it will continue to fulfil its contractual obligations to the troika,” in the event of a change of government in Athens after the January 25 election.

The “troika” bailout comprises the European Central Bank, the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund, overseeing Greece’s total €240bn (£193bn) bailout package, which has been in place since 2010.
