What is Portugal’s PM’s stance towards Greece?

  • PM Passos Coelho is highly critical of Syriza (Greece's radical left anti-austerity government ), even though Portugal is the weakest eurozone country after Greece.
  • He believes debt problems must be solved by painful austerity and structural reforms (Portugal recently successfully exited their own bailout program).
  • His tough (Merkel-esque) stance towards Greece is under attack at home.
