BERLIN Nov 27 Germany's legal reservations
about a further write-down of Greek public debt would cease to
apply if the country were to reach a sustainable primary budget
surplus, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on
He told reporters there was little time for manoeuvre before
the December 13 deadline for a Greek debt buy-back, which is at
the heart of a new debt sustainability plan agreed by euro zone
finance ministers, but he was confident it would work.
If the buy-back failed to yield the results hoped for, the
"troika" of the International Monetary Fund, European Central
Bank and European Commission would have to review it, he said.
