Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Finlands finance minister actually briefed parliament on their position before going to Brussels.

Urpilainen om Cypern: Finlands linje är hård | Hbl.fi/nyheter Urpilainen on Cyprus: The Finnish line is hard | Hbl.fi
Innan Urpilainen åkte till Bryssel mötte hon riksdagens Stora utskott. Det skedde redan klockan sju på morgonen. Det var inte mycket hon kunde säga om Cypern-mötet.Before Urpilainen went to Brussels she met with the Parliamentary Large committe. It was seven o'clock in the morning. There was not much she could say about the Cyprus meeting.
- Vi vet inte hur mycket pengar Cypern behöver. Cypern befinner sig i en mycket svår situation. Utan utomståendes stöd tvingas landet ställa in betalningarna. Nu är frågan hur stora lån Cypern behöver och till vilka lånevillkor.- We do not know how much money Cyprus needs. Cyprus is in a very hard situation. Without outside support the country will be forced to cancel payments. Now the question is how large loans Cyprus needs and on what conditions.
- Finlands linje är hård. Vi utgår från att Cypern på riktigt måste kunna sköta sin ekonomi i framtiden, sade Urpilainen innan hon skyndade till Brysselplanet.- The Finnish line is hard. Our starting point is that Cyprus needs to really be able to handle its economy in the future, said Urpilainen before she hurried to the Brussels plane.
