Easy to bend rules of EU debt treaty: Lithuania president


A new EU treaty aimed at preventing a repeat of the eurozone debt crisis leaves scope for states to bend the rules, Lithuania President and former EU budget commissioner Dalia Grybauskaite said.

"I am sure there will be eagerness among some member states to interpret differently for example budgetary rules, methodology, what to exclude," Grybauskaite told AFP of the new fiscal pact drawn up to re-affirm tight limits for public deficits and debt.
