Juncker: ‘We have a Grexit scenario prepared in detail’

“The Commission is prepared for everything. We have a Grexit scenario prepared in detail,” said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker after EU leaders met in Brussels on Tuesday.

While Juncker showed his opposition to a potential Greek exit from the eurozone, he also blamed the Greek government ‘for not doing what they are expected to do”.

“I am strongly against Grexit but I can’t prevent it if the Greek government is not doing what we are expecting the Greek government to do, respecting the dignity of the Greek people,” Juncker added.
