  • [01] 'Troika' reps to return to Athens this week, FinMin says

    AMNA / The Greek government will send letters to the European Central Bank, the IMF and the European Commission explaining in detail all the new measures and political commitments taken by the government to achieve its goals, Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos said on Tuesday.

    Speaking to reporters after his return from Washington, the Greek minister stressed that EC-ECB-IMF troika officials will return to Greece this week and that an agreement over fiscal measures for 2011 and 2012 has been reached over the phone. Venizelos again rejected all speculation about a larger haircut of Greek bonds and an orderly default of the country, while commenting on the sixth tranche of a loan facility to Greece he said its release will be on time and said that figures over the participation of the private sector in the Greek state bond swap program “were optimistic and encouraging”.
