Latvia’s PM says new euro entrant will back ‘all the rules’

RIGA (Reuters) – The euro zone’s next entrant, Latvia, will push for tight budgets, labour reforms and free trade deals when it joins the bloc next year, Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis told Reuters on Thursday.

Latvia’s euro entry in January cements its shift away from Russia two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union and Dombrovskis said in an interview that he fears Moscow is trying to flex military and trade muscles in the Baltics.
