The worst is over for Greece says finance minister

Greece's Finance Minister has told the BBC that this will be the last year of recession in his country.

Yannis Stournaras said the worst was now behind Greece and that there was no more austerity to come as long as the government implemented the reforms already passed.

And he had some warning words for the UK following Prime Minister David Cameron's speech last week promising a renegotiation of the country's membership of the EU.

Mr Stournaras was speaking to our Athens correspondent Mark Lowen, who started by asking about the outlook for this coming year.
