BERLIN (Reuters) - Granting Greece debt relief would do it a disservice, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said late on Tuesday, daily newspaper Passauer Neue Presse reported.
"Whoever says 'we will relieve your debts' is doing Greece a disservice," the Passauer Neue Presse quoted Schaeuble as saying.
Euro zone finance ministers are due to discuss wide-ranging debt relief for Greece when they meet next month. U.S. President Barack Obama also offered solidarity with Greece over its debt on Tuesday.
