February 15, 2012

Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Dutch Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager isn’t in favor of lending more than the proposed 130 billion euros to Greece.

“At the time we agreed upon 130 billion” euros, De Jager told Dutch RTL television in an interview today, adding this is already a big burden for the euro zone states. “If now it seems more is needed, we should explore other ways,” he said.
