Weidmann Sees More Aid for Greece as Possible, Sueddeutsche Says

May 12, 2012

European Central Bank council member Jens Weidmann said further financial support for Greece can be considered if the country sticks to its promises, Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported, citing an interview.

“If Greece isn’t keeping its word then it is a democratic decision,” Weidmann, who also heads Germany’s Bundesbank, is quoted as saying. “Consequently, it misses the basis for further financial support.”

Weidman also said that it is still not time to drop the extended credit support measures, Sueddeutsche said.
