Greek gov’t spokesman: ‘I could also say Germany’s behavior is irresponsible’

A few hours before what promises to be a tense Eurogroup summit in Brussels, Greek government spokesman Gavriil Sakellaridis commented on remarks by German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, according to which Greece is behaving “quite irresponsibly,” noting that Berlin’s behavior could be described in the same terms.

“Who is irresponsible and who is responsible is subjective,” Sakellaridis told Parapolitika. “I could also say that Germany’s behavior is irresponsible. But I don’t want to trade remarks.”

Asked about the prospects of a deal at the Brussels meeting, Sakellaridis appeared uncertain and repeated that the government’s aim was to find a mutually acceptable solution.
