One cannot be Minister of Finances, fulfill his obligations and respond to the interviews of Mr. Varoufakis. You cannot do both, it is a matter of time” he commented.

Mr. Tsakalotos further added that “the government has a collective responsibility” and that “he has commented on the positive and negative aspects of the first six months of the SYRIZA government”.
