BRUSSELS, March 1 (Reuters) - Eurogroup chairman Jean-Claude Juncker said that the two-year stability test required for a currency of a country hoping to join the euro zone should be discussed.
“I can understand that there may be a slight question mark over the condition that one needs to be member of the monetary system (ERM2) for two years, we will discuss this calmly,” Juncker told a news conference after a meeting of EU leaders.
Juncker added that he did not think that this would lead to a situation where the two-year ERM criterion would not matter anymore.
Juncker also said that a common eurozone bond would not be helpful in the present circumstances.
