Finland Would Like to Exit Euro Instead of Pay for Other EU Countries

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(HELSINKI) -- Finland would rather end using the Euro than help pay the debt of other countries within the European Union the Finnish Finance Minister Jutta Urpilainen says, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Matti Hirvola, a spokesman of Urpilainen, countered that the minister’s comments did not indicate that Finland was indeed planning to stop using the Euro.

Finland is currently one of the few EU countries still with a triple-A credit rating.
