3. Anastasiades tells Rehn: 'I told you tax wouldn't pass. Regards to Mrs Merkel'

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades held a telephone conversation with European Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn on LAST Monday night to inform him that there might not be enough parliamentary support for a deposit tax on the island.

Cypriot MPs were due to debate on Tuesday a tax on deposits but it looks like Anastasiades will not be able to get enough votes to approve the one-off levy, which was decided at Eurogroup meeting in the early hours of Saturday.

Anastasiades is also reported to have spoken to German MEP Elmar Brok, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkelís CDU party who is close to the German leader.

According to Mega TV, Anastasiades is reported to have said to Rehn and Brok: ďWhen I warned you that there would not be a parliamentary majority to pass the agreement, you didnít want to listen. Give my regards to Mrs Merkel.Ē

The Cypriot presidentís reported comments have not been confirmed.
