European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker has said that the contingency package of extra austerity measures for Greece demanded by creditors is unreasonable and unconstitutional, the German MNI agency reported Wednesday quoting unnamed sources.

According to the same report, Juncker criticized the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which has taken a more hard line position in negotiations with the government in Athens, saying its role is undermining the eurozone.
