BERLIN - The name of Dutch finance minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem as possible successor of Jean-Claude Juncker to chair the Eurogroup "was possibly discussed in the corridors" of the EU summit last week, but not as a main agenda topic, German spokesman Steffen Seibert said Monday. A decision will be taken next month.
