Varoufakis says Germany’s Schaeuble makes mistakes on Greece

Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, who has clashed with Germany’s Wolfgang Schaeuble repeatedly over negotiations on his country’s debt and economic reforms, has told a German weekly that Schaeuble makes mistakes in his analysis of Greece.

The left-wing economist, asked by Die Zeit in excerpts of an interview to be published on Thursday whether the conservative finance German minister commits such mistakes, answered: “Yes, he does.”

“It is frustrating that we are not able to speak with each other in a context where arguments count more than relative power,” said Varoufakis. [Reuters]
