Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Quels types de mesures peuvent être prises ? Des achats de dette grecque par chaque Etat ou par la BCE sur le marché secondaire ?

Okay, so Juncker totally obviates the role the ECB could play in his reply though the question mentions it explicitly. Which is fair, he can't speak for Trichet, the ECB being independent and all.

But the ECB is an institution of the Union,  the one "responsible for monetary policy".

This concerns the Eurozone, and the Euro, for which the ECB has particular responsibilty (as does Juncker).

Otherwise, what can the Union do, with its piffling budget?
