The government categorically denied on Friday a report in the electronic page of the German magazine "Der Spiegel", according to which Greece is discussing its exit from the euro. According to government sources, the report on the country's exit from the euro, apart from being untrue, is written with frivolity, despite the fact that it has been denied categorically by the Greek government and by other eurozone member-states. Such reports, according to the same government sources, undermine the effort of Greece and of the entire eurozone and serve profiteering games.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for Eurogroup President Jean-Claude Juncker denied, in statements to the ANA-MPA in Brussels, the Der Spiegel's report on an urgent meeting on Friday evening in Luxembourg to discuss Greece's exit from the Eurozone.
