Is that you, Mr Schäuble?

No one said you have to pay the whole debt, just some of it.

I also believe Greece should pay most of the debt it owes, to the extent that it can.

This is Syriza's position as well. It is indeed almost everyone's position associated with Greece, including some of the radical left elements of the party.

Varoufakis also spoke about debt restructuring with growth-linked bonds, and also about a Merkel Plan, Herrmann's idea is not that far from those.
