TALLINN -- Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip has lashed out at Danske Bank analysts who said the country's accession into the eurozone was still not assured and that there was a very real chance the bid would be rejected.

"We have made all efforts to switch to the euro, we have met all entry terms and we are an example for other countries. We have reached all euro-entry criteria in a sustainable way and expect to receive a positive stance from the European Commission on our bid to make the currency switch next year," said Ansip.

Estonia is widely expected to become the next member of the eurozone at the start of next year.
