Bailout fund head says all gov’ts want Greece in eurozone

Greece and its eurozone partners should be able to come to a deal on the country’s funding needs because everyone wants it to stay in the currency area, the head of the monetary union’s bailout fund said in an interview with Le Monde published on Monday.

Klaus Regling, head of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), told the French daily newspaper: «All governments want Greece to remain in the eurozone, and we are aware that Greek opinion polls show that a majority of the population do too.

“That’s a good basis and should make a deal possible.”
