Dijsselbloem says no plans to quit as Eurogroup president

Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem said he is available to finish his term as president of the Eurogroup, adding he has no plan to resign before his term ends in January 2018, Reuters reported April 7.

Speaking on the sidelines of an informal meeting of eurozone finance ministers in Malta, Dijsselbloem, who has led the group since 2013, said none of his fellow finance ministers had called for his resignation.

Politicians across Portugal, Spain and Italy called on Dijsselbloem to quit after an interview with a German newspaper in which he appeared to compare countries the EU had bailed out during the financial crisis to a person who spends "all the money on drinks and women and then ask[s] for help."
