According to the German Chancellor Greece has a much better chance of overcoming the crisis, than is commonly believed, and budget consolidation measures are not in opposition to economic growth.
Creation of a legal possibility of Greece in the euro area are increasingly requesting cooperation by some politicians of the ruling Christian Democratic Germany, the Bavarian CSU. Also, EU Commissioner has assessed in an interview with Dutch newspaper "Volkskrant", that is not true that the exit from the euro area one of the members had to bring down the entire structure.
- I'm not a fan of the output of Greece, but the euro zone would suffer because of this so much - she said Kroes. From her words, distanced himself from the head of the European Commission Jose Barroso.
Merkel also warned on Tuesday against recourse in times of crisis to the national prejudices. "That's exactly what I have often led Europe to ruin" - warned.
She added that it is not true that Germany has to make up their "homework" in contrast to other EU countries. According to Merkel, when it comes to family policy, the possibility of reconciling career and family life or social programs, other European countries are further than Germany.
- And when we compare how much time it takes to build a road or railway track, the Germans are certainly not at the forefront of Europe - assessed by the agency dpa quoted German Chancellor, referring to the conflicts and social protests against the construction of new railway station in Stuttgart and the expansion highway near Berlin.
