          “Varoufakis helps the process is not”: EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker



European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker criticized the role of the Greek Finance Minister Yannis Varoufakis in debt dispute. “It does not help the process,” Juncker said in an interview published on Tuesday the news agency MnSi. “Varoufakis is the Finance Minister of a country which faces huge problems. It does not look as if he knew that. “


More confidence sets Juncker in the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. “I think he’s very personable, very constructive – and I have a very friendly relationship with him.” Tsipras’ Syriza left designated the Commission as “not a normal party”. This he did not trust, because there is a whole mix of different tendencies within Syriza.

His ministry presented a little later realized that such a proposal will not followed in the discussions with the funders.
