Zeman favours Czech adoption of euro only after “Grexit”, says spokesman

The Czech president, Miloš Zeman, is still in favour of the Czech Republic adopting the single European currency, the euro, his spokesman Jiří Ovčáček said at a news conference on Tuesday. However, that would mean that Czech tax payers would have to pay the debts of Greece. Mr. Zeman therefore favours a Greek exit from the Eurozone as the most reasonable solution to the country’s crisis, said Mr. Ovčáček. Greece has repeatedly failed to solve its problems and it is not reasonable to believe its promises, according to the Czech president.
