The eurozone would cope if Greece left the currency union, Germany's finance minister said in an interview on Friday as Greek parties continued with efforts to form a government coalition.
Asked by the regional Theinische Post whether the eurozone could withstand a Greek exit, Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble said: "We want Greece to remain in the eurozone. But it also has to want this and to fulfill its obligations. We can't force anyone. Europe won't sink that easily."
