Euro-area finance ministers yesterday “did not exclude” a selective default during a meeting on Greece, “so we have more options, a broader scope to work with,” de Jager told reporters in Brussels today.
European Union finance chiefs today will discuss stress tests on the region’s banks. De Jager declined to comment on the tests before the talks. “We are going to listen first,” he said. “It’s very important to have credible stress tests. I am going to listen first and then I can comment on it later.”
