Germany, Berlin
May 5, 2015 at 06:17 GMT +00:00 · Published

German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble said he was "skeptical" that a Greek debt deal would be agreed by Monday, May 11, during a press conference at the German Finance Ministry in Berlin, Tuesday.

Schauble also said that he "does not like to speculate about a Grexit" [Greek exit from the Eurozone], but stressed that this does not mean Europe "are ready to do everything to avoid it". Despite this, Schauble also stated that Germany "will do everything to help Greece" but only in "the frame of their agreement".

Schauble has publicly expressed his doubts regarding the Greek debt deal several times in the past. The German Finance Minister even called into question the decision making abilities of his Greek counterpart Yanis Varoufakis in February of this year.
