Tsakalotos Says There’s No Grexit Fear After Brexit


What the impact of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union this past Thursday will have on the Greek economy will have to be examined carefully, but there’s no issue of a Greek exit from the Union, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos said on Sunday, during a speech at SYRIZA’s central party committee.

Commenting on the results of the UK vote, the minister said it will “create ambiguities and uncertainties for the European economy”, but may also open a debate on centrifugal forces.

He said he agreed with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, that on the question of more or less Europe, the response is “we need a better and more democratic Europe”.
