Rabbitte Says Any Greek Settlement Concerns Ireland, Portugal

October 19, 2011

Oct. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Irish Energy Minister Pat Rabbitte said that any euro-wide settlement of Greece’s debt will “especially” concern Ireland and Portugal.

“I don’t know if anybody knows at this stage whether or not a settlement in the wider eurozone circumstance will be concluded this weekend or not,” Rabbitte said in the Irish parliament in Dublin today. “It is a matter that concerns all the member states and I would suggest especially Portugal and Ireland. It concerns us especially what terms of settlement are agreed.”
