"If we will need to use euphemisms and financial-credit instruments and mechanisms to take Greece out of debt bondage, we will do it. There is only one meaning. Greek national debt will stabilize, open the growth perspective and Greek people will finally be able to breathe," he said in a statement.
On Monday, Varoufakis told the Financial Times newspaper that the Greek government plans to swap outstanding debt for new growth-linked bonds, instead of its pre-election call for a headline write-off of all its foreign debt.
The newspaper reported that the proposed plan would include two types of new bonds. The first type will be indexed to nominal economic growth and could replace the European rescue loans, while the second would replace Greek bonds owned by the European Central Bank.
The new left-wing government of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, which took over after the January 25 election, has vowed to revise Greece's highly unpopular austerity measures.
During his first cabinet meeting, Tsipras said that he plans to negotiate the country's $270 billion bailout debt with its creditors.
