Merkel no longer discards losses on Greek debt
Weekend headlines suggest German Chancellor Angela Merkel may be re-thinking its stance over future Greece’s debt haircuts, after she said on Sunday this is an option to consider, although not until the ongoing rescue program shows Greece’s budget turned into a surplus. Since last Tuesday’s deal to ease the mammoth-size debt burden that the Greek government suffers, so that its debt to GDP ratio can come down to 126.6% or thereabouts by 2020, Germany’s posture on write-downs of Greek debt has been firm, saying that it would be illegal to pursue such scenario.

The majority of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right coalition members as well as the main opposition parties supported the Greek deal. This outcome has positive implications for Merkel herself, as the vote was also a test of her lawmaker’s support for her European policies, ahead of the federal elections scheduled for September 2013. During the debate preceding the vote German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble expressed his satisfaction with Greece’s austerity efforts and emphasized that the speculation on another haircut on Greek debt could destabilize the situation in the Eurozone further. – FXstreet.com
