Finland’s Stubb warns of ‘Berlin Wall’ between north and south in Europe

Finnish European Affairs Minister Alexander Stubb warned Thursday against what he described as an attempt to erect a «Berlin Wall» separating northern Europe from the debt-laden south.

“Europe was divided for close to 50 years between west and east and it is pointless to divide it today between the north and south. We do not want a new Berlin Wall,» the minister told Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter.

Stubb said he was convinced that Greece would remain in the eurozone, and that Finland will not lose any money in its loans to Athens.
