Estonia’s Ansip Says Worst Greek Scenario Is No Euro ‘Disaster’

Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip said the worst-case scenarios for Greece, including a rejection of euro membership at a referendum, shouldn’t be considered a “catastrophe” for the euro or the European Union.

“I wouldn’t overestimate the possible effect of the worst-case scenarios in Greece on the future of the euro zone or the European Union,” Ansip told a news conference today in Tallinn, the capital. “I feel very sorry for the Greeks now, they have to hugely tighten their belt at the moment. But the euro zone is much bigger than just Greece.”
