Rutte Sees Possible Extra Steps to Keep Greece on Track

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said Greece may need more financial help to stay in the euro, retreating from a hard line that included a willingness to consider the country’s exit from the currency bloc.

Echoing his German allies, Rutte declined to speculate on Greece leaving the 17-nation euro. “Wolfgang Schaeuble, the German finance minister, is entirely right that you have to take a view on the situation of Greece every couple of years again, whether we are on track and whether extra steps have to be taken,” Rutte said in an interview yesterday in The Hague.
