Poland's Szczurek: first market reaction to Greek referendum not significant

WARSAW, July 6 (Reuters) - Poland's Finance Minister Mateusz Szczurek said on Monday that he was not surprised by the result of the Greek referendum and that the first reaction of the financial markets does not seem significant.

Greeks voted overwhelmingly on Sunday to reject the terms of an international bailout meaning that the banks are likely to remain closed in the coming days.

"I have to admit that I am not that much surprised. The referendum itself does not have to be such a key issue.(...) The first reaction does not seem significant," Szczurek told public radio, adding that Poland's economy is balanced.

He added that The European Union's inability to deal with the Greek crisis is an argument for Poland not to enter the euro zone for now. (Reporting by Agnieszka Barteczko; Editing by Wiktor Szary)
