Responding to the disappointing Eurogroup outcome on Greece, the Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament on Tuesday directed stinging criticism at German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble and accused him of behavior that was contrary to the interests of Europe as a whole.

“With his opposition to any progress on Greece, Schäuble continues to be a problem for Europe” said S&D Group President Gianni Pittella in a tweet on his Twitter site. According to a tweet posted by S&D Group Vice President Udo Bullman, the German finance minister was responsible for “excuses, delay, stalling” and his handling of the Greek issue was “economically dangerous and politically irresponsible.”

S&D Group MEP Pervenche Berès also criticized the outcome and whether this was in the interests of Europe in a post on Twitter: “After so much effort done by Greece, how can debt relief still be refused? European interest must prevail in the Eurogroup.”(Source: ANA-MPA)
