Benjamin-NetanyahuGreece’s Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis (na slici) declared he was ready to do “whatever it takes” to reach agreement over its bailout after the collapse of talks with EU finance ministers.

Varoufakis spoke after Greece rejected an EU offer to extend its current €240 billion (£178bn) bailout, a plan he called “absurd” and “unacceptable”.

Rekao je da je spreman dogovoriti sporazum, ali pod različitim uvjetima.

Međutim, nizozemski ministar financija izjavio je kako je ostalo još samo nekoliko dana za razgovore.

Jeroen Dijsselbloem, who chairs the Eurogroup of finance ministers, said it was now “up to Greece” to decide if it wanted more funding or not.

“My strong preference is and still is to get an extension of the programme, and I think it is still feasible,” Dijsselbloem told a news conference after the talks collapsed.

Greece’s current bailout expires on 28 February. Any new agreement would need to be approved by national governments, so time is running out to reach a compromise.

Bez sporazuma Grčka će vjerojatno ostati bez novca.

Varoufakis said there was still “substantial disagreement” on whether the task ahead was to complete the current programme, which Greece’s newly elected government has pledged to scrap.

He dismissed the promise of “some flexibility” in the programme as “nebulous” and lacking in detail.

Speaking at a news conference after Dijsselbloem, he said he had been presented with a draft communique by Pierre Moscovici, the EU’s economics commissioner, which he had been ready to sign.

Međutim, taj nacrt je povučen nekoliko minuta prije početka sastanka, rekao je Varoufakis.

Ali on je nastojao smanjiti zaostatak kao privremeni zastoj.

“Europe will do the usual trick: It will pull a good agreement or an honourable agreement out of what seems to be an impasse.'”

Analiza: Andrew Walker, dopisnik BBC-a za ekonomiju:

Dva goruća financijska pitanja naziru se nad Grčkom: može li vlada platiti svoje račune i stabilnost banaka.

Grčki dužnosnici kazali su kako bi vlada mogla nastaviti raditi nekoliko mjeseci, ali postoje sumnje. Koliko će trajati, u velikoj mjeri ovisi o grčkim poreznim obveznicima.

Banke su već vidjele povlačenje novca i sve češće trebaju zajmovi središnje banke. Ako ne postoji program spašavanja, Europska središnja banka mogla bi povući banke.

Ako dođe do toga, to bi doista značilo veliku financijsku krizu, možda s nametanjem opsežnih financijskih kontrola koje bi podržale banke i možda čak i ponovnim uvođenjem nacionalne valute.

It’s hard to nail down a date by which an agreement must be done to avert some sort of financial Armageddon, because it depends on the actions of taxpayers, bank customers and the ECB. But time is getting short.

Prije sastanka, njemački ministar financija Wolfgang Schaeuble već je rekao da nije optimističan da će se postići dogovor.

“The problem is that Greece has lived beyond its means for a long time and that nobody wants to give Greece money any more without guarantees,” he said.

Međutim, francuski ministar financija Michel Sapin izjavio je kako europski čelnici moraju poštovati političke promjene u Ateni. Kada je stigao u Bruxelles, pozvao je Grke da prošire svoj trenutni sporazum kako bi omogućili vrijeme za razgovore.

refinancirati

Grčka je predložila novi program spašavanja koji uključuje kredit za premošćivanje kako bi se zemlja zadržala na šest mjeseci i pomogla joj da otplati € 7bn (£ 5.2bn) dospjelih obveznica.

The second part of the plan would see the county’s debt refinanced. Part of this might be through “GDP bonds” – bonds carrying an interest rate linked to economic growth.

Greece also wants to see a reduction in the primary surplus target – the surplus the government must generate (excluding interest payments on debt) – from 3% to 1.49% of GDP.

In Greece last week, two opinion polls indicated that 79% of Greeks supported the government’s policies, and 74% believed its negotiating strategy would succeed.

Greece’s total debt: €323bn
