ECB’s Knot Tells Telegraaf Raising EFSF Unavoidable in Long Run

European Central Bank Governing Council member Klaas Knot said raising the European Financial Stability Facility is “unavoidable” in the long run and may be followed by joint euro bonds, Ducth newspaper De Telegraaf reported today, citing an interview.

We have to adress the budget problems structurally first, Knot was cited as saying by De Telegraaf.

Governments will have to refinance existing Greek debt, but the question is whether you have to do that with new debt too, Knot also said, according to De Telegraaf.
