Estonia cannot agree to EU Commission rescue plan: finance minister

TALLINN (Reuters) - Estonian Finance Minister Martin Helme, who represents a far-right party in the governing coalition of the eurozone country, said he cannot agree with the EU Commission’s economic rescue plan unveiled earlier on Wednesday.

“The EU Commission, very much along the lines of French-German proposals, has presented a big step towards United States of Europe,” Helme told national broadcaster ETV in an interview.
