    New Greek finance minister, Oxford educated but equally hard line

    Dutch born Tsakalotos, Oxford University-educated economics professor served as international economic affairs minister before taking over from Varoufakis

    New Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos may be less flamboyant than his predecessor Yanis Varoufakis, but his views on his country's debt crisis are no less stridently held. While most commentators appear to agree that Mr Tsakalotos, 55, will be less bombastic than Mr Varoufakis in his dealings with international creditors, some argue that his negotiating stance could even be more hard line.
