Greek euro exit, debt rescheduling not on agenda, says Moscovici

Questions of Greece exiting the euro or rescheduling its debt are not on the agenda, European Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici told Le Monde newspaper in an interview published on Wednesday.

Moscovici added that the European Commission wanted Greece to remain in the eurozone.

“The Commission wants Greece to stay in the eurozone,» he was quoted as saying. «It’s important for monetary union – its integrity.”

He also said the Greek elections did not amount to a potential trigger for a crisis in the currency bloc.
