troika will be in Greece forever Merkel wants 'permanent' supervision of Greece, warns of war BRUSSELS - Peace should not be taken for granted if the euro fails, German chancellor Merkel told MPs. In a dark blue jacket reflecting the mood in and about the eurozone, Merkel abandoned her usual cautious rhetoric warned outright of a war. "But debt restructuring alone does not solve the problem. Painful structural reforms have to be made, otherwise even after debt restructuring we're back to where we are today," Merkel warned. That's why, she said, Greece would have to be "assisted" for quite some time. "It's not enough that the troika comes and goes every three months. It would be desirable to have a permanent supervision in Greece," she said.
