  • [01] EU confirms troika not returning to Athens before Dec. 9

    ANA-MPA - The representatives of Greece's troika of lenders are not returning to Athens before the Eurogroup meeting on December 9, Simon O'Connor, spokesman for European Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Olli Rehn said on Monday.

    During his regular press briefing, O'Connor said that the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund delegations will remain at home base and continue their talks with Greek authorities from there. The Eurogroup is not expected to discuss the Greek issue.

    The spokesman reiterated that Greece has made progress in the financial sector and economic reforms but need to resolve pending issues. In earlier briefings, he has mentioned the fiscal gap for the 2014 budget, tax reforms, privatizations, competition, product markets and services that will enhance the economy's competitiveness.

    Asked about the issue of seizures of first homes, he said that one of the major issues for an agreement to be concluded is to protect the most financially vulnerable families. The issue should be resolved without leaving room for abuse, as is happening now under the system in effect, he said.

    Greece wants to fulfill its debt agreement obligations before the end of the year - the prior actions and current review by the troika of the fiscal adjustment programme - and its assumption of the EU presidency on January 1, 2014 for six months.
