“There is no discussion over a debt restructuring,” Deputy Finance Minister Filippos Sahinidis told Reuters, and in response to an article by the German publication “Die Zeit”, according to which Berlin was examining a plan to restructure the Greek debt.

The report said the plan envisaged the re-purchase of bonds by Greece through funds offered by a European Support Fund. Reuters said a spokesman for Germany’s finance ministry also dismissed the magazine report.
