Arab Today, arab today S&P: Cyprus default risk is real

Brussels - AFP

Eurozone nation Cyprus is a genuine and growing default risk, the global credit rating giant Standard & Poor\'s said on Wednesday. A key player behind bond market runs on Greek, Irish, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian debt over three years of eurozone debt doubts, the agency\'s assessment serves as a reminder that the crisis in the currency area is not yet over. \"We view the risk of a sovereign debt default as material and rising,\" S&P\'s experts wrote of the Cypriot government\'s prospects in a note to investors. Negotiations have slowed on a June request from Nicosia for a bailout from eurozone partners, triggered in large part by Cypriot banking sector exposure to Greek debt write-downs. No deal on a package likely to exceed 17 billion euros ($23 billion) is expected before mid-March at the very earliest. Talks have been held up amid Cypriot resistance to privatisation demands from creditors, and problems with money-laundering blamed on Russian investors. But mainly, the worry is that the bailout will push Cyprus\' debt-to-output ratio beyond levels seen as sustainable by the International Monetary Fund. S&P\'s said such a bailout could push the ratio above 140 percent of gross domestic product. The agency said a bailout was politically controversial, not least because Cyprus\' output represents just 0.2 percent of the whole eurozone economy. It also warned that its experts believe that a September general election in Germany could throw parliamentary approval there into doubt.
