Greece Must Accept EU ‘Solidarity,’ Germany’s Seibert Says

November 02, 2011

Nov. 2 (Bloomberg) -- The crisis will become “much more difficult” for Greece if it doesn’t accept “solidarity” from the European Union, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said.

“Greece has the solidarity of Europe as long as it undertakes great efforts to restore its financial stability and competitiveness,” Seibert told reporters today in Berlin. “Without this solidarity, it will be much more difficult for Greece -- everybody should know that.”

German would have preferred to know earlier about a possible referendum, Seibert said. Leaders will discuss the details of the referendum plans later today in Cannes, France, before Group of 20 leaders meet for a summit. European Union Finance Ministers will also discuss the issue next week in Brussels.
