Greece’s new government is sending “very mixed signals” on its aid program and it’s too soon to say how the country will be treated in the European Central Bank’s bond-buying plan, ECB Governing Council member Bostjan Jazbec said.

“Our concerns and hopes are related to how the Greek government will understand the situation and react to it,” he said in an interview in Ljubljana on Thursday. “It’s too early to directly answer questions on when and how the ECB can buy Greek government bonds.”
