Venizelos Says Greece ‘Not the Central Problem’ in Euro Region

October 22, 2011

Oct. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos said “Greece is not the central problem of the euro zone” after the region approved the sixth disbursement of aid for the country under last year’s rescue.

The endorsement of the aid installment “is a very good and positive and constructive step,” Venizelos told reporters today in Brussels before a meeting of European Union finance ministers. “Now the point is to take more general and more constructive decisions for the euro zone as a whole.”
