You hear things different on the press, we are close to agreement, Varoufakis tells euronews

Fire and brimstone show EU deal is close, Varoufakis tells euronews | euronews, world news.

Yianis Varoufakis talks to Euronews " We are  close "

Varufakis denied suggestions that personal relations between him and the other finance ministers had deteriorated irreparably. Bloomberg news reported today that ministers had referred to Varoufakis as a “time-waster” a “gambler” and an “amateur”, but the former economics professor insisted the situation was very different.

“There is a major disconnect between what you hear in the press and the actual reality on the ground. We are adults and colleagues, we respect and even like each other,” he told euronews. He did admit, however to “a certain intensity at times regarding the negotiations” and predicted that the talks might have to “reach the very last moment before a mutually beneficial outcome emerges from a conflicting narrative”.
