The Greek crisis intensified on two fronts as the likely US ambassador to the EU said the eurozone might break up, and the Netherlands warned it will not take part in another bailout if the International Monetary Fund drops out of the process.

Ted Malloch, President Donald Trump’s pick as the US representative in Brussels, said there is a question mark over the survival of the euro.

“Whether the eurozone survives, I think it’s very much a question that is on the agenda,” Mr Malloch told Greek broadcaster Skai TV.
