Rajoy Says Hollande Doesn’t Know State of Spain Banks, Efe Says

May 20, 2012

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said Francois Hollande doesn’t know the situation of Spanish banks after the French president recommended an international bailout for the lenders, Efe newswire reported.

“I don’t think Mr. Hollande said that because, logically, he doesn’t know how the Spanish banks are,” Efe quoted Rajoy as saying today in Chicago, where he’s attending a NATO meeting.
