AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The head of the Eurogroup said on Thursday that Europe is prepared for various outcomes to the standoff between Greece and its creditors.

Jeroen Dijsselbloem, who heads the group of finance ministers of countries that use the euro, had been asked whether there is a “plan B” for Greece.

“The question is the Netherlands prepared, or is the Eurozone prepared for eventualities, the answer to that is: ‘yes’,” Dijsselbloem said.

Dijsselbloem, who is also the Netherlands’ finance minister, was answering questions at a meeting with members of Dutch parliament.
